Writers’ Guidelines here
Glimmer Train says: “Most submissions run 1,500 – 6,000 words, but stories as long as 12,000 words are fine.
“The 1st-place winner will be published in Glimmer Train and will receive 10 copies of that issue. Second-and 3rd-place win $500/$300, respectively, or, if accepted for publication, $700. Winners and finalists will be announced in the September bulletin, and contacted directly the previous week.”
