Nick Adams Short Story Contest Deadline is Feb. 15, 2019

ACM sponsors the Nick Adams Short Story Contest to celebrate the creativity and talent of student writers at ACM colleges and highlight excellent creative writing programs across the consortium. This year's deadline for English departments to submit entries is Friday, Feb. 15.

Student entries are now being solicited for the forty-seventh annual Nick Adams Short Story Contest.

Entrants may submit as many as two stories to their campus English Department. Each department will select the four best stories to send to the ACM office; a small committee of faculty drawn from colleges throughout the consortium will then select the finalists. The winner will be chosen by a professional writer.

Deadline for English departments to submit stories for consideration is February 15, 2019.  Note: check with your campus' English Department chair for specifics on how to enter. Learn more at acm.edu/nickadams.
