This contest honors award-winning author George Garrett (1929-2008), a master storyteller who never quite received the recognition he deserved. The wide range of Garrett’s interests and subjects is often blamed for his lack of recognition, and for that reason, we do not restrict this contest with regard to subject. We do, however, look for technical proficiency. Disregard for grammar or mechanics will see an entry disqualified faster than anything else. We want to read a compelling story, well-told. We want to meet characters that come alive, and while we value originality, we tend to favor traditional story-telling over abstract styles. George Garrett judged the contest up to the time of his death in 2008. Eric Miles Williamson took over in 2009, and has been our final judge since then.

2017 Clay Reynolds Novella Contest: Guidelines

Those entries that succeed in this contest are typically those that do one thing: they tell a simple story well, without the garnish of fancy experimental styles or attempts to write abstractly rather than directly. The features our judges look for are great characterization, dialogue, accuracy and vividness of setting, consistency in point of view and technique, and, above all else, a well-written piece of fiction that is free of jargon, grammatical error, and stylistic nonsense. Grammar and mechanics errors will disqualify an entry faster than anything, so please take care in manuscript preparation and mechanical correctness. We are not interested in work that appears trendy or that tries too hard to be fashionable. We also shy away from work that imitates some other contemporary, popular writer. We look for honesty and directness in the writing. Be aware of the language that is appropriate to the time and place you write about.

Clay Reynolds is our final judge.
