This page of listings of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry contests is a service to those who enjoy them. I do not seek out contests, but will post those that are brought to my attention if they appear legitimate (have a 5-to-1 pay-out ratio; e.g.: $5 fee to a $25 average per story published) and they do not include fiction written by the publisher(s), editor(s), judges, or staff. Some require an entry fee and I take no responsibility for how those fees are used, or for the management (or lack of it) of these contests. Enter at your own risk! US ($), UK (£), or EU (€) currency are used unless otherwise noted. Addresses are US unless noted otherwise. These listings are provided in good faith with the belief the info is correct, but Ralan.com accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions in them. The fact that an entry is listed here is no guarantee that said entity will carry through with their contest, or ever publish anything. Contact with any editor or publisher is at the contributor's own risk. Ralan.com encourages all potential contributors to do a web search of the editor's and/or publisher's name before submitting to them. Each visitor assumes all risk associated with the use or misuse of the information here.
