Premium Contest Rules


Entries must be original works, in English, for which the entrant still holds the publication rights. Previously published works are acceptable provided that the publication rights have returned to the entrant. Be sure to enter your story in the correct category.

AuthorStand Premium Contests are open to non-U.S. residents as well, provided that a contest of this nature is legal in an entrants specific location. All entry fees are in U.S. Dollars.


Every entry will be read by the judges. Judges’ decisions are final. Feedback will consist of judges' scores in five categories and a brief review with either recommendations on how to improve upon the story or what the judges thought was done well. Judges are AuthorStand, LLC. employees.
