Contest :: Driftwood Press 2022 Adrift Contests Are Open

This year, Carl Phillips is leading the charge on the Adrift Chapbook Contest, and Allegra Hyde is tackling the Adrift Short Story Contest! The deadline for both contests is July 15th!

Our Adrift Chapbook Contest is our biggest contest of the year, so we’ve been able to up the award money to $1,000 for a single chapbook and $400 for any runners-up. On the fiction side, a single short story could nab you $500 as a winner or $200 as a runner-up. Folks loved how we increased our response speed for the In-House Short Story Contest, so we’re doing something similar for the Adrift Short Story Contest; check out the guidelines for more details. For our last fiction contest, we selected five stories for publication. That’s a lot of runners-up! Head over to our submission portal to get your work in soon!
