Stories Out of School Flash Fiction Contest

The winning story will be published in A Public Space‘s print edition and the author will receive $1,000. Teachers have the most fascinating, difficult, and important job on the planet, and their workdays are filled with stories. Yet teachers seldom appear in fiction. This annual contest was created to inspire great stories about teachers and the rich and crazy world of schools. The story’s protagonist, or its narrator, must be a K-12 teacher. Stories must be between 6 and 749 words and previously unpublished. Sentimentality is discouraged and education jargon is forbidden.
