There are presently no open calls for submissions.


In 2016 a small group of writers was presented with an informal short story challenge  -- given an opening and closing paragraph, craft an original short story connecting the two.  

The challenge ultimately resulted in one of the short stories growing into the novel Dog Logic, which went on to win a Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Silver award for Science Fiction, a Bronze in Literary Fiction from Readers’ Favorites, and selected as a  Contemporary Novel Finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards.

The success of the first challenge motivated the launch of the 2018 Owl Canyon Press short story Hackathon #1 which was such a smashing success that we’re doing it again with bigger prizes.
