Welcome to The A3 Review's July Contest

We've made this month an open-themed contest. It's summer up here in the NH, so we encourage you to run wild, be free! This month is your chance to share those flash fiction pieces eager for a home; those poems snuggled away on your hard-drive; the sketches and photographs you've been deliberating where to send to. Send us your best and your favourites.

And for those (like us!) who like a prompt: Open is your prompt of the month. Open doors, open hearts, "open sesame", open books, open relationships. Have we opened a can of worms? We tend to be open minded, in general.  

We welcome short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 panel.

For more inspiration, visit us on Twitter.

DEADLINE: 22 July 2017

Please make sure to view our full guidelines here.

Entry fee is $5 (approx £3) per submission. Multiple submissions welcome.
All genres welcome. All writers and artists welcome.

The two winning entries from each month's contest will be published in Issue #7 of The A3 Review. Winners will also receive contributor copies and Writing Maps goodies.

CASH PRIZES: Three overall winners of the March till August contests will receive cash prizes of £150 for 1st; £75 for 2nd; and £50 for 3rd.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing your work!

PS. The editors of The A3 Review offer feedback on submissions after the deadline date. If you'd like suggestions on ways to strengthen your work, just add the Brief Critique option to your submission fee, and we'll provide you with a line edit of your work, along with a 200-word critique.
