Thank you! We have received your message.
How to apply
Send us one original story, of your own creation, that you think is primed for the Spillers audience. IMPORTANT: This story must be no more than 10 minutes long when read aloud (generally 1,800-2,000 words), and free to be published in a Spillers event chapbook. Excerpts are acceptable, but the piece must work as a standalone short story. Either send us a link or paste the story into your email here.
What we look for in a writer
Our favorite thing is to put diverse and undiscovered talent alongside award-winners. We don't limit Spillers to specific genres or styles. Simply, we want the best version of what you do well. We look for unique voices, distinct voices, true voices — a voice only you can have, only you can bring. If we love what you've done, we'll proudly and loudly make you part of Spillers.
