      THE LONG STORY CONTEST, International (formerly The Long Fiction Contest,
      International), now in its 15th year, has become the premier competition for
      writers of stories that don't fit the conventional limits imposed by the economics
      of small press publishing.  Named for A. E. Coppard, one of the leading
      British writers of the 1920's, whose first story was rejected only because it was

      In order to acknowledge and encourage entries from outside the United States,
      the word International has been added to the title. All submissions must be in
