Terms and Conditions
Stories must be a maximum of 5,000 words. The word count will be strongly enforced: a story of 5,001 words is invalid and will be rejected without refund.
Stories must be unpublished in all formats including personal websites and blogs.
Stories must contain no identifying information in the document or in the title of the document or in the ‘Title’ section within Submittable as submissions are read blind in keeping with Into the Void’s ethos of fairness and equality. The blindness policy will be strongly enforced: a submission that includes identifying information will be rejected without refund.
Simultaneous submissions are allowed but submissions must be withdrawn immediately when accepted elsewhere and will not be refunded.
This contest is open to writers based anywhere in the world.
Each entry of a single short story costs $12 Canadian. There is no limit to entries per person. The money received from entries will go toward the prize money and anything extra will be used to cover the many costs of running Into the Void. None of the money received will go to any of the editors or other staff of Into the Void. Each entry comes with a free one-year online subscription to Into the Void worth $9.99.
