Students may submit up to two short stories of up to 10,000 words each for the ACM Nick Adams Short Story Contest. Entries should be submitted with a separate cover sheet for each entry containing the author's name, the title of the story, the author's email address, phone number, current address (either campus or permanent), and the word count of the story. The title of the story must also appear on the first page of the story. The author's name should only appear on the cover sheet. Submissions in PDF format are due to Professor Rebecca Entel (email@example.com) by midnight on Tuesday, Feb. 9.
This year's judge is Bill Hillman, author of the memoir Mozos: A Decade Running with the Bulls of Spain (2015) and the novel The Old Neighborhood (2014). The winner of the contest will be announced in mid-March and will receive an award check for $1,000 and be invited to attend the ACM Student Symposium in April. Contact: Rebecca Entel
