Uncharted Magazine Cinematic Short Story Contest
Uncharted Magazine

For this short story contest, we want to read your most cinematic stories! We want stories that we can clearly visualize, that make us feel like we’re there in the moment, and that activate all of our senses. We want worlds that pop up in our minds, characters who are fully articulated and bent on breaking their rituals. We want stories with vitality and velocity that rely on swift cuts of action and reaction.

This market charges a fee of $20.00 to submit.
