Gestalt Media July Short Story Contest

Writing community, show us your best writing skills.

Anyone is welcome to join and showcase their writing. Short stories, hosted on the author's website (or Wattpad, or anywhere we can link to), are open for submissions through the third week of April. On Saturday, July 18th we will post all the links submitted and a voting poll on the Gestalt Media website to track votes publicly.

Each month, we will announce a theme for the short stories on the Gestalt website and on social media. Feel free to be creative with how you fit this theme into your writing. The piece that receives the most votes will be the winner. A story should be judged by the effect it has on the reader and, therefore, the readers themselves will be the judges of who wins each month. The top voted story each month wins $50 and will be featured on the Gestalt Media website for the rest of the year.

The top two stories from each month will be offered the chance to be published in the Gestalt Media year-end anthology planned for November of 2020.
