Submit your entry to the 16th Annual Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest by following the contest guidelines.
Please make sure the cover letter field includes your mailing address, telephone number and email address. Even though you have already entered this information when creating your Submittable account, we still need it to appear in the cover letter.
Judging is blind, so please do not write your name on your entry.
The deadline is March 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM PST.
You will be asked to pay the entry fee before submitting your work. You can then enter the name of your submission and fill in the cover letter field, and then attach your entry. You will only be allowed to attach two files: your story and your postcard.
Please only use this category if you have already submitted your first Postcard Story Contest entry. This category should only be used for additional entries.
Those who attempt to use this category fraudulently will be disqualified.
Please check our Postcard Contest FAQ or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about entering the contest.
