Inception Offers $500 for Authors or Artists

Beginnings have the power to spark passion or curiosity. A poem handles this differently than a flash piece, which handles an opening differently than a novel. The first photo, painting or frame presented in a gallery, series, or graphic novel strives for the same intent.

For Sunspot Lit’s 2021 Inception contest, send your best opening. There are no restrictions on theme, category, or the length of the piece or collection from which the beginning comes. There are, however, limits on the word count/number of artworks allowed in each submission. Please read the guidelines carefully.

Open: July 1, 2021 (submit here)

Close: September 30, 2021

Entry fee: $10
