The Year's Best Dog Stories Contest 4

A project of Secant Publishing

About

Secant Publishing announces a contest to find the year’s best short stories devoted to the theme of communication between dogs and humans. This is especially apt coming toward the end of a worldwide pandemic in which so many people have been sheltering in place and pets have been more psychologically important than ever to millions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
