Bridges connect us — both literally and metaphorically. We can build them. We can burn them.

Arched concrete giants link sprawling cityscapes. Rickety rope bridges span remote jungle canyons. Personal relationships spring up, or collapse.

For this year's Inlander Short Fiction Contest, the theme is "Bridges" — however you want to define or interpret the concept. Be creative. Be bold. We want to read your stories.*

Stories must be original and unpublished elsewhere. Keep your stories to fewer than 2,000 words. Writers may submit multiple stories for consideration.

Send your stories — as attachments — to [email protected] Please put "Fiction Contest Entry" in the subject line.

The deadline is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22.

Take a look at the stories from last year's contest (based on "The End") below:


"Putzkammer's Sonata"

"Right Before the Aneurysm"

"The Bus Ride"

Runners up:

"The End Again"


"Enjoy Yourself"

For this year's contest, we will select our favorite stories to publish in our Short Fiction issue on Dec. 26. Good luck.

* We don't want to read a bunch of bridge jumper stories. Try something else.
