We want to share your stories about your publishing journey and your writing life here. Write to entertain, to enlighten, and to advise (but not preach). Write to share your gratitude, amazement, and disbelief.

Share the good, the bad, and the silly, but don’t share them all in one submission. Think of a blog post or a short-short story. No epics.

No fiction here. These are real-life stories ranging from 250 to 750 words. Less is more. Make your point clearly and move on. 

Who knows what your experience might inspire?

New submissions will be added quarterly. Send through Submittable,  <!-- Link to the Writer Advice submission manager. --->

$6 submission fee covers our time, possible editing, and the decision-making process.

You get a credit for your resume plus a brief bio and the satisfaction of sharing your experience Sorry that we do not have the income to pay you at this time.

WriterAdvice, www.writeradvice.com,  seeks flash memoir, a personal life story from your life, running 750 words or less. Enlighten, dazzle, and delight us. Finalists receive responses from all judges.

DEADLINE: Submit to the WriterAdvice Flash Memoir Contest by March 1, 2019.

JUDGES will be former prizewinners. 

PRIZES: First Place earns $150; Second Place earns $75; Third Place earns $40 and all 3 will be published in Writer Advice. Honorable Mentions will also be listed.


1.     Include your name, contact information, and title in the cover letter, but only include your title in the submission so it remains anonymous. 

2.     Since we judge these anonymously, you don’t need a cover letter that includes more than your contact information. If you are a finalist, we’ll ask for a bio. 

3.     Please double-space your submission. We recommend that you use a 14-point font that is easy to read. Verdana, Cambria, and Ariel all spring to mind.

4.     Simultaneous submissions accepted but please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere.

You may enter UP TO THREE stories, but each is a separate submission with a separate fee of $14.
