"We seek original fiction from undergraduate students and offer a prize of $1000 for a story that stirs, shifts, or shakes us in some way. We hope that you could help spread the word about this rewarding opportunity.
Out of our desire to keep this contest accessible to all, we do not charge a fee for submissions. We also ensure that judges read stories blindly, without knowledge of the entrant's identity or academic institution, because what matters to us fundamentally is the work itself."
"Anyone with a passion for media and the writing skills to back it up can join The Artifice. Our only rule is that members must be at least 18 years of age. Our current writers range from undergraduates to emeritus professors and a bit of everyone in between. New voices are always welcome!"
