Apex Christmas Flash Fiction Contest

Apex Publications is holding a merry little Christmas-themed flash fiction contest to brighten the season Apex style. Meaning — dark science fiction, fantasy, or horror. Something significantly more forbidding than a lump of coal in one’s Christmas stocking.

The winning story will be published on the Apex blog on December 23, with the author receiving a short story critique from Apex owner/publisher Jason Sizemore, 5 cents a word for their flash fiction, and a subscription to Apex Magazine as their prize.

How to enter:

All entries must have to do with Christmas, but have a distinctly Apex slant – dark science fiction, fantasy, or horror

Submissions are open now through December 16th

250 word limit

Email entries to [email protected] with the title and author name in the subject line

Please no attachments. Stories should be in the body of the email.
