Moment Magazine is now accepting submissions for the 2024 Moment Magazine-Karma Foundation Short Fiction Contest. Moment will award up to three prizes to outstanding works of unpublished short fiction with Jewish content.

 Winners may be invited to an awards ceremony. If so, the contest covers a round trip flight or train fare and one night in a hotel, if necessary. All travel arrangements are to be made by Moment.

 The judge published in promotional materials judges the finalists. At all times, all decisions are final.

 After the completion of the contest, Moment editors will review winning stories. Editors will contact winners if their stories are being considered for publication. Moment Magazine reserves the right at all times to select material for publishing. All selected material is subject to editing by Moment editors.

Entry Fees:
