Summer Solstice Story Contest

Hi EC Friends:

It pays to follow EC, because unless you follow this site or me or support EC financially somehow (in which case you got advanced warning) you won’t know about this writing opportunity! It will only be promoted here, on EC’s Facebook page, and on my Twitter account. My Twitter handle is @EnchantedConvo and the Facebook page is HERE. You will not find this one-time opportunity on sites like Duotrope or Ralan.

Here are the details:

I’m looking for Summer Solstice stories. The publication date will be June 20.

Although “Midwives, Healers, and Cunning Folk” is the theme for 2021, you do not need to include it as part of these submissions (but it is still the focal point for the rest of the year). You may if you wish to.

The stories should be between 1000-2000 words. Those are firm length requirements.

The submissions window opens at 12 a.m., EST, June 10 and closes at 11:59 p.m., EST, on June 13.

All other rules about submissions apply, except pay amounts. No exceptions. Find the rules Here. Just put your last name and Solstice in the subject line.

Pay will be $100. Only one story will be chosen.

I hope to see lots of submissions. I love Summer Solstice! And please don’t forget our Summer Solstice Celebration. I’m hoping it will be well attended.

Stay enchanted,
Kate Wolford
