Please select an entry category based on your age:
Our Seventh Anthology - Bones and Blue Eyes and other stories of life.
Stories of Life is a short story writing competition that seeks out true stories of faith and testimony. Every year we publish an anthology of the best entries and award cash prizes in three categories. We have just launched our sixth anthology, The Labyrinth and other stories of life.
The Judging and Publishing Process
All submissions are appraised as anonymous entries. A preliminary reading panel selects the best stories for publication in our annual anthology. These stories are also passed on to the judges.
There is one judge per category, and we have different judges every year. The judges select the top three stories in their categories.
In October, we will announce the list of stories that we will be publishing. Prize winners are announced at the launch of the anthology in November.
