A Midsummer Tale 2023

A Midsummer Tale is a summer-themed narrative writing contest open to non-genre fiction and creative nonfiction.

The theme of the 2023 A Midsummer Tale writing contest is: Best Friends Forever…?

Inspired by optimistic yearbook signatures, this year’s theme is a tribute to our once-upon-a-time BFFs, the friendships we couldn’t imagine not lasting forever. For this year’s A Midsummer Tale contest, write about a now-troubled—or severed—friendship between two people who were once-inseparable besties. Did the friendship slowly unravel or suddenly break apart? Could the pieces be put back together again or was it time to let it go?

Your story must be set during the hot summer months and the theme must play an integral role in the story.

Deadline for entries is June 21, 2023.
