The deadline for the StoryQuarterly Fiction Contest has been extended to November 30. The contest offers a First Prize of $2,500, a Second Prize of $1,500, and a Third Prize of $750. And ten Finalists will each receive $100.

"The StoryQuarterly Fiction Contest is open to all writers. We welcome pieces in the following categories: short stories, short short stories, and novel excerpts. Entries must be previously unpublished, whether in print or online, and no longer than 8,000 words."
They only accept online submissions and although there is a $20 fee for each entry, you'll receive six months free access to Narrative Backstage. Contest guidelines can be found here. Good luck!
