Electric Literature presents a writing competition for talented writers above 18 titled "Stories out of School". Electric Literature is a non-profit organization founded in 2009. Our mission is to amplify the power of storytelling with digital innovation and to ensure that literature remains a vibrant presence in popular culture by supporting writers, embracing new technologies, and building a community to broaden the audience for literature.

Competition Theme:

Teachers have one of the most fascinating, difficult, and important jobs on the planet, and their workdays are filled with stories. Yet teachers seldom appear in fiction. This annual contest was created to inspire honest, unsentimental stories about teachers and the rich and complex world of schools. This year, the Academy for Teachers has partnered with Electric Literature to publish the winning entry. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The story’s protagonist or its narrator must be a  K-12 teacher. 
  • The story must be between 6 and 749 words long.
  • The story must be previously unpublished.
  • Use 12-point Arial font and double space. Put your name, email address, phone number, and the story’s word count in the upper left corner. 
  • You must be 18 years or older to submit. Please submit only once.

Award:

The first-prize winner will receive $1,000 and the story will be published online in The Commuter, a home for a brief, diverting, and innovative writing. The second-prize winner will receive $500
