If you've written a short story recently, now's the time to send it in to a contest. A lot of contests are ending in the upcoming week, plenty for you to choose from, and with entry fees ranging from $15 to $20, you really don't have any reason not to. Unless your story sucks.

I'm just kidding. It's probably pretty good, and one of the biggest benefits of submitting your fiction to a short story contest is that even honorable mentions are considered for publication! Trust me from experience: when you get a short story in the "finalist" category, editors take note. It's a great way to get exposure, too.

Here are some contests ending soon:

Shenandoh Review. Ends: Oct. 31st.

The Missouri Review. Ends Oct. 1st.

Glimmer Train Contest. Ends Oct. 1st.

The Black Warrior Review. Ends Oct. 1st.

Boston Review. Ends Oct. 1st.

Zoetrope: All-Story. Ends Oct. 1st.

Southern Indiana Review. Ends Oct. 1st.

Mid-American Review. Ends Oct. 31st.

Georgetown Review. Ends Oct. 1st.

Mississippi Review. Ends. Oct. 1st.

Good luck!

Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
