Grand prize:
The winning story will be published in Apex Magazine!

Judges:
Maurice Broaddus (author of The Voices of Martyrs and Buffalo Soldiers), Janet Harriett (editor and author) and Gary Braunbeck (multiple Stoker Award-winning author of In Silent Graves and too many other novels to mention).

Event Activities:
Entrants will read their stories to the audience and the judges, While the judges are making their decisions, the entrants will hold a panel discussion on their writing process and how they dealt with this particular challenge. After the winners are announced, the judges and the writers of the top two stories will have a panel discussion on an as of yet undecided topic.

Apex Magazine is proud to be part of this event, and we hope you can join us at Winton Woods High School on April 1st!
