Contest Brief

Looking for submissions for Christian short stories. The word count is flexible, but somewhere between 300 to 800 words is a good target. Longer is not necessarily better--if you can pack a good punch in a short space, that's great!

These stories should highlight Christian values without being too over-the-top preachy. Given that these are for a Christian audience, it is of course welcomed to discuss topics important to us like prayer, church, love, etc.

One contest winner will be guaranteed and I will be open to buying contest runner-up entries if multiple great stories are submitted.

Thanks for your consideration!

    Hi. May I know your target age bracket? Should the story sound engaging for Sunday School children or more like a creative illustration when spoken from the pulpit? Thanks. :)

      Great question...preferably a story that will sound engaging for Sunday School children. Of course that is still a bit of an age range, but if we're lucky a story can be appreciated in different ways by different ages. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

    Hello there, may i ask something ? because i don't understand fully what you need.
    Are you looking for a bible-story, a fiction slice of life story, or a true slice of life story?
    Thank you for the respond.

      Hi, thanks for your question. I'm looking for a fiction story, much like any of the stories found on this site: http://storyberries.com/category/5-min-stories/
