No entry fee is required. One story entry only.

A prize of $100 will be awarded for the winning story.

In addition to the story being published on Jerry Jazz Musician, the author’s acceptance of the prize money gives Jerry Jazz Musician the right to include the story in an anthology that could appear in book or magazine form. All other ownership rights are retained by the author. If story appears subsequently in other publications, we ask authors to note that the story was originally published on Jerry Jazz Musician.

Submission deadline for the next contest — our 53rd — is January 31, 2020. Publishing date will be on or about March 10, 2020. Ideally, stories will not exceed 3,000 words but stories of up to 4,000 words are considered. There are no age limitations.

Please submit your story by January 31, 2020 via Word (preferred) or PDF attachment to jerryjazzmusician@gmail.com, and be sure to include your name, address and phone number with your submission. Please include “Short Fiction Contest Submission” in the subject heading of the email.
