What good is your story if its still sitting unpublished in your drawer? None. Yep. Here’s your chance to send that story out into the world. What’s more, you could win the prestigious Kenyon Review Short story contest.

Before you apply, here are the rules.

The 2016 KR Short Fiction Contest is for writers who haven’t yet published a book of fiction. If you’ve published a non-fiction book, I think you can apply.
