The Family Narrative Project Short Essay Contest
Submissions for The Family Narrative Project Short Essay Prize close at midnight on October 31. 1000 word max essays on the theme of family. $500 prize. An interview with the winning author will be published on our website. $10 entry fee. At Family Narrative Project, we believe you should tell us who makes up your family and that you should feel free to speak honestly and, if necessary, critically about family. In other words, we are as open to a loving portrait about your grandmother as we are to a harsh critique of family life.
