Announcing the 2010 Asian American Short Story Contest


Announcing the 2010 Asian American Short Story Contest, co-sponsored by Hyphen and The Asian American Writers’ Workshop (AAWW)! This is the nation’s only contest dedicated to Asian American voices and an opportunity for you to win $1000.

This year’s contest — our third — will be judged by writers Alexander Chee and Jaed Coffin, and the winning story will be published in Issue 21 of Hyphen. Along with the winning story, we will also name another nine finalists who win a year subscription to Hyphen and a year-long membership to the AAWW.

The contest deadline is March 31st, so pull out that story you’ve been working on or use this as an excuse to write down that story that’s been haunting you forever. This contest is all about nurturing and elevating Asian American writers, so don’t miss the opportunity. Also, please help us spread the word by sending the contest info to all the writers and storytellers in your life.

Go to for submission guidelines and more details.

Also, stay tuned to the Hyphen blog for interviews with the judges, the winning stories from the last two contests and more about Asian American writing.
