You could be a winner!

For Yellow Mama’s 15th Anniversary issue, we’re having a Flash Fiction Contest, and you could be a winner! In addition to having your work published in our (semi) famous magazine, winners will accumulate some nice, signed copies of Cindy’s and Kenny’s latest books (bound to be collector’s items someday) from Hekate Publishing. Here are the rules:

  1. All entries must be original work, (no reprints) and made by email to crosmus@hotmail.com as a file attachment in MS Word (any version) or as an Adobe PDF file, and clearly marked “Contest entry”. Please put your name on the manuscript somewhere. Entries will be closed as of January 1st, 2022.

  2. Entries are flash fiction only, consisting of 700 words or less and should be formatted in Times New Roman 12-point, double-spaced.

  3. Subject matter is left up to the writer, but must comply with Yellow Mama’s regular guidelines… (don’t kill the dog, don’t rape the cat, don’t burn the kids alive, don’t mess with anyone’s religion, don’t defile the corpses, etc.)

  4. Winners will be notified and offered the standard contract for their work, and their stories will be published in the Valentine’s Day issue, February 15th, 2022.

  5. Valentine’s Day-themed entries will have a better chance of winning and the darker, the better!

  6. Non-winners may also be offered a contract for future publication, if we like what you have to say…

  7. There will be a winner, first runner-up and second runner-up chosen by consensus of your esteemed Editor and her Web-Master guy.

  8. And, finally, entries will be limited to two (2) per person. We're like everyone else, only so many hours in the day. Thanks, and good luck!
