Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers

Glimmer Train announces their Short Story Award for New Writers, deadline of May 31st:

1st place wins $1,200, publication in Glimmer Train Stories, and 20 copies.
2nd place: $500 and possible publication.
3rd place: $300 and possible publication.

Glimmer Train is one of the best magazines for aspiring writers to publish in.  They are always open to new talent, and they pay significant earnings for contributors and contest winners.  Because of this, competition is also fairly stiff.
  However, with easy online submissions, entering your stories is very straightforward.  And if you'd rather not pony up an entry fee, they also have their Standard Submission, with no entry fee and a flat $700 payment upon acceptance.

In addition, you may be interested in these books on fiction by the Susan and Linda, the editors of Glimmer Train:
