“Buried” Spring Writing Contest

by R.J. Catlin

Are you buried in story ideas and searching for opportunities to write a short story?

Over at The Company, we have a short story contest running that is ‘Buried’ themed.
Whether a character is digging up old, buried treasure, burying a skeleton in the closet, or is
buried in homework, we’d love to see what you come up with for your short story submission.

Get as creative as you want!

The contest is open for submissions right now through July 1, 2024. All styles of narrative are
accepted as long as the story is inspired by the word ‘buried’ and is 1,500 words or less. You do
not need to include the word ‘buried’ in your story.

Submissions will be judged by the first-year apprentices at The Company: Vella Karman, R.J.
Catlin, and Noah Matthews. The winner will get a $100 Amazon gift card and publication on the
Pearl. The runner-up will get a $50 credit to spend at The Company online store.

Submission is free to any writer of any age and you keep the rights to your work. For more
details, check out this article on The Company website.
