Entries are now closed. Here is the final prize money update. We hope to respond to all submissions by September 20th to give writers enough time for resubmissions. If you don’t receive a response by then, assume you are in the top 5.

Update (10/3): We have selected our five finalists. If you have not received a response in Submittable, then your story has been chosen as a finalist.
