TulipTree New Writers Issue

April 21, 2019
TulipTree New Writers Issue

Deadline: May 23
Release: June 21

This contest is for writers who have not yet been published. Specifically, we consider being published by a journal or magazine, in print or online, as being previously published (i.e., you sent out your work, and someone said yes). We also consider self-publishing your book as officially being published. However, if you post articles to a blog or put your stories up on your own personal website, that would not disqualify you for this contest. We are looking, as ever, for stories that need to be told. These can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—if it tells a story, it fits.

We love it when contributors tell us that we are their first publishing credit, and this contest exists to provide more people with that opportunity. 

Grand prize for each contest: $1,000. Contributors for each issue will be paid, amounts depending on the contest turnout. Additionally, all contributors receive a free copy of the issue in which they appear. Word Limit - 10,000 words. Entry fee - $20 per entry.
