Get Your Words in Word!

Halloween WLZ Contest

Are ghosts real? Make us believe it. WLZ is now looking for memoirs of your encounters with the supernatural. Submit a creative non-fiction piece (up to 2,500 words) of a time when you had a spine-tingling run in with the unexplainable, and you could be the lucky winner of a WLZ prize package.  One submission per fee please!
                                                                                          Deadline OCTOBER 20th

Word Lit Zine is always open to submissions in fiction, poetry, memoir, and more. Do not hesitate, send in your work now!

We do have a couple of guidelines though:

  • One submission per payment. You can submit multiple times, but you may only submit one work at a time; no sneaking in a poem with your short fiction submission.
  • All forms must be submitted as a word document and properly formatted— 11 pt font, single spaced, and in a Word doc (docx).
  • All content must be original— no plagiarized work will be accepted
  • Unpublished submissions only, or work that has only been printed in a publication of less than 2,000


  • Submission limits:

PROSE (i.e. fic, non-fic, memoir) 5,000 Words Max
