New Contest Announced!

2015 Essay Contest: “Elders”

bioStories Magazine is pleased to announce its second annual essay contest. The theme for 2015 is: “Elders”. We encourage writers to interpret the theme broadly and creatively.

Entries may be up to 3,000 words, must be nonfiction, and cannot be previously published. Entries should be submitted by pasting the essay directly in the body of an email addressed to: The words “Elders Submission”, the title of your essay, and your last name must appear in the subject line. The body of the email must include the essay title at the top; no other identifying information should be included. All submissions will have identifying materials removed and be evaluated in a blind review by our editorial board. The contest entry fee is $10, payable via the Paypal button below (essay title to be entered as indicated). Entries that fail to follow contest guidelines or that do not include fee will not be eligible. Deadline for entry is February 16, 2015.

Winner receives $250 and publication.

All essays entered into the contest are eligible to be selected for regular publication in bioStories. The magazine will be open to standard submissions throughout the contest period as well.

Visit bioStories to read past winners, all of our regular issues, and to submit.
