Eyelands.gr literary magazine in collaboration with Strange Days Books organize an annual international short story contest, and a flash fiction contest, the only international story contests based in Greece. Every year, writers from all the continents of the world participate in them.
The short story contest has been running continuously for the past eight years, offering hundreds of writers the opportunity to see their short story printed in one of our collections, created through the contest entries. For many of these writers it is the first time that a story of theirs is printed in a book or featured online. The jury reads all submissions blind.
The English section of the EISSC contest has been recognized as a truly reliable, fair and serious short story contest. Every year, many reputable websites, such as

and many others all over the world post the announcement of our contest, which has earned its reputation year after year, by honoring all its promises, following the rules meticulously and meeting all criteria that allow a contest to gain respect and recognition on an international level.
The flash fiction contest made a very successful start this year and we are very proud of it but we try another project here, the Eyelands Book Awards
