Southern Pacific Review seeks short fiction written in (or translated into) English . Word count is flexible, but flash and novelette length works will have to try harder. Interesting ideas and depth of meaning are more important than genre. Hard to say what we want, except that we know it when we see it.
Winning prize is $100 USD and publication in Southern Pacific Review. Entries are accepted from 1 January 2017 to 30 March 2017. Writers retain the rights to their work.
Submit entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no reading fee. Please submit as Word or PDF attachment. Entries with no cover letter (1 paragraph will suffice.) will not be accepted.
We need writers in any Latin American country to do reporting.

Congratulations to Daniel Hurren on winning this year’s South American Short Story contest. This is a truly original story written in the David Foster Wallace stream-of-consciousness whatever-you-want-to-call-it meandering style which we like. Here is Daniel’s story.
