Hint Fiction Contest Submission Page

Below is the submission form to submit your Hint Fiction stories. You can submit up to two stories.

Stories should be no longer than 25 words. This does not include the title. Actual hyphenated words, such as good-hearted and mother-in-law, can count as one word. If a story is longer than 25 words, it will be automatically disqualified.

Robert and Roxane will not see the author names; those will be stripped away and sent to them so they will only see the stories.

Using one of Robert’s own Hint Fiction stories as an example, please format your stories like this, capitalizing the whole title with the story directly underneath:


It was Fredrick Miller, not his murdered son Matthew, who was executed Monday night at Henshaw Prison.

Contest submission period ends April 30, 2019 at 11:59 pm EST. From there a top 10-15 stories will be picked by Robert, which will then be sent to Roxane. Winners will be announced on this website.

Good luck!


Submissions are now closed. Winners will be announced at this website once chosen. Thanks to everyone who submitted!
