Call for Beekeeping Stories!
We know every beekeeper has a story and we want to hear yours! Wicwas Press LLC invites you, your spouse, partner, or friend to submit a story about honey bees or beekeeping. Send us your final version in a Word or Pages file, not a PDF. You may send up to three submissions. We’re open to true stories, fiction, and poetry. Entries over 1500 words for essays (both fiction and non) or 3 pages for poetry will automatically be disqualified. All entries will be considered by our selection committee with selection emphasis on new ideas and old concepts presented in a new way. Swarm stories will be hard to impress us.



First prize - $500.00

Second prize - $300.00

Third prize - $200.00


There is NO FEE to enter but you must be a US resident to be considered for the cash prize. Winners and others selected will be published in an upcoming anthology. All submissions must be your own work and not previously published in any form. Those chosen for the anthology will receive a complimentary copy and may purchase additional copies at a reduced price. Wicwas Press LLC reserves first rights to publish your work and to edit your submission. We also retain the right to cancel the contest or not award a prize if our standards are not met.
