Jersey Devil Press announces its first-ever novella contest

Heads up, writers and readers: Jersey Devil Press, the magazine I work for, is announcing its first-ever novella contest. Which is awesome for two reasons: 1) Even though novellas seem to be coming back into vogue and lots of publishers are dabbling in contests of one sort of another, they still don’t get the attention they deserve. So we’re showing the form some love.

And 2) Even though lots of publishers are dabbling in the novella, every seems to want to be all high and mighty about it. Which is fine for them, but at Jersey Devil, we want to have fun while reading great fiction, so to hell with all that literary stuff. We’re doing fantastical, we’re doing sci-fi, we’re doing horror, we’re doing funny. Ideally, we’re doing all that in the same damned story.

So check out the guidelines for the contest at the Jersey Devil site (and stick to those guidelines!), and let’s settle in for some long-form awesomeness.
