Esquire’s In-Titled Fiction Contest

2009_5_th.jpgEsquire magazine has launched a short fiction contest that allows writers to create everything except the title.

Contest entries must make use of one of these three titles: “Twenty-Ten,” “An Insurrection,” and “Never, Ever Bring This Up Again.” The contest celebrates the launch of the magazine’s new online fiction section, which currently contains stories Stephen King and Don Delillo.

Here’s more from the release: “A date, a thing, and a statement. No exceptions. Make of them what you will, do with them something great. But no taking an old story and slapping one of our new titles on it. We’ll know, and we won’t be happy. Second rule: Your story cannot exceed 4,000 words. We are serious about that, too.” (Via Practicing Writer)
