Stories Out of School Flash Fiction Contest
 
NO ENTRY FEE. Deadline September 16, 2018. Teachers have the most fascinating, difficult, and important job on the planet, and their work days are filled with stories. Yet teachers seldom appear in fiction. This yearly contest, a joint venture of The Academy for Teachers and Tin House, was created to inspire honest, unsentimental stories about teachers and the rich and complex world of schools. There are two criteria for submissions. The story’s protagonist or its narrator has to be a teacher and the story has to be between six and 749 words. First-prize winners receive $1,000; second-prize winners, $500. Both will be published online by Tin House.
