Nat. Brut (pr. nat bro͞ot) is a multimedia art and literary magazine. We aim to provide quality, engaging, dynamic, inspiring work from a wide array of genres and mediums in a way that values the potency and interconnectivity of these mediums.
Nat. Brut. invites entries to its flash fiction contest. Each submitter is allowed up to two entries for a $15 entry fee. 100% of the money raised through the contest will go directly into the magazine and its projects. The top three entries will receive a $100 cash prize and publication in Nat. Brut.
The contest opens September 1st and closes November 1st.
There is no theme to this contest. There is no minimum word count, but the maximum word count is 1,000.
Amy Hempel will serve as the contest judge. Amy is the author of four collections of short stories including Reasons to Live (1985), At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom (1990), Tumble Home (1997), and the Dog of the Marriage (2005).

We, The Malahat Review, would be most grateful if you could help spread the word about our upcoming Open Season Awards writing contest, deadline November 1. The award grants three separate prizes of $1,500 (Canadian funds) to the best writer in genres of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. The cash prizes have been increased this year by $500 each genre.
All entrants receive a complimentary one-year subscription to The Malahat Review in exchange for payment of entries ($35 in Canada, $40 in U.S., $45 international). We welcome additional entries in one or more genres for a cost of $15.
Deadline Nov 1, 2015. Details here.
The Malahat Review also accepts regular submissions. Unlike with contests, it doesn't cost anything to simply submit your work to Malahat. Unsolicited poetry submissions should consist of three to five poems (up to six pages) on any subject and in any style. The magazine will often accept several poems by the same author; therefore, please do not limit your submission to a single poem.
Unsolicited submissions of short fiction may be up to 8,000 words in length. Unless the stories are very short (i.e., less than 1000 words long each), no submission may consist of more than one story.
Unsolicited submissions of creative nonfiction may be up to 4,500 words in length. No restrictions as to subject matter or approach apply. Unless the stories are very short (i.e., less than 1,000 words each), no submission may consist of more than one story.
Creative nonfiction is literary writing based in fact. It can include, but is not limited to, the personal essay, memoir, narrative nonfiction, social commentary, travel writing, historical accounts, and biography, all enhanced by such elements as description, dramatic scenes, dialogue, and characterization.
