TulipTree Review: Disruptors

September 22, 2021
TulipTree Review: Disruptors

The entire world just witnessed the mother of all disruptions with Covid-19, and we are looking for stories with the same idea.

These can be small disruptions that have a big impact or huge disruptions that change everything. From Good Trouble to a wrong turn, from carefully executed plans to a good rage-quit to leave minimum wage behind, the greatest beginnings come from disrupting the old ways, whether intentionally or not.

Entries can be fiction, nonfiction, or poetry—as usual, if it tells a story, it fits!

Prizes: Grand prize for each contest: $1,000 (and for the Wild Women issue, a 2-year subscription to Duotrope). Contributors for each issue will be paid a minimum of $50; payments may increase depending on the contest turnout. Additionally, all contributors receive a free copy of the issue in which they appear.

Word Limit: 10,000 words. Entry Fee: $20 per entry. Deadline: Oct. 17, 2021
