Irreantum Contest Rules

All unsolicited fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction submissions must be received during our submission window, January 1-May 31. These submissions will be considered for that year's Irreantum Fiction Contest, Poetry Contest, or Charlotte and Eugene England Personal Essay contest, and must be submitted according to contest rules. Any submission received outside the submission window will not be considered; however, we encourage authors to consider resubmitting the following year after January 1st. Individuals may submit a maximum of three entries total to all three contests (e.g. a person may submit one entry in each genre, or a person may submit three entries to the fiction contest).


Irreantum Fiction Contest

The first-place author will be awarded $300, second place $200, and third place $100 (unless judges determine that no entries are of sufficient quality to merit awards). Publication is not guaranteed, but winners agree to give Irreantum first publication rights.

Any unpublished fictional form up to 8,500 words will be considered, including short stories and excerpts from novels. Because Irreantum is a literary journal dedicated to exploring Mormon culture, entries that relate to the Mormon experience in some way will be given preference in judging. Authors need not be LDS. Irreantum staff and members of the AML board are not eligible.

Deadline: May 31.

Submission Instructions

Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Please email your entry as an MS Word, PDF, or RTF file attachment to fictioncontest@mormonletters.org.

In the subject line, please write "2012 Fiction Contest." Include your name, the title of your submission, and your contact information, including address and phone number, in the body of the email. Do not put your submission in the body of your email.

To facilitate blind judging, no identifying information should appear in the story itself other than the title of the manuscript, which should appear as a header on each page.

Winners will be posted on Irreantum's website, irreantum.mormonletters.org by August 31.

With no official connection to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Irreantum Fiction Contest is funded through a grant from the Eugene England Foundation.
