GH Short Story Contest

To celebrate it's 125th anniversary, Good Housekeeping is having its first ever short story contest.

You must be 21 or older to enter. Submissions should be original, 3,500 words or less, and focus on the lives of women today. The deadline for submissions is Sept. 15.

The winner will receive $3,000.00 and publication of her story in GH (no small thing as the magazine has featured work by Ray Bradbury, John Cheever, Rona Jaffe, Nicholas Sparks, Maeve Binchy, Jennifer Weiner, Elinor Lipman and Picoult).

Stories will be judged by Jodi Picoult, author of such books as My Sister's Keeper and Handle With Care.

For more information, go to Good Housekeeping's website.
