Contest Time!


The photo above is what I prefer to call a “Window”. In a way paintings, photos, and other visual arts are “Windows” into another space. Whether it is in the artist’s mind or a recreation of an actual place, these “Windows” allow us to pause for a moment and see someone else’s view. Why the “Multiverse” then? Many authors use paintings, photos, and other visual arts in order to inspire them to create whole new universes and times for us to enjoy. Where does this tunnel go? Is it a portal into another world or an opening to a primitive society? The destination is up to you!

This popular contest is a of staple our magazine and will continue to accept submissions quarterly in the months of January, April, July, and September.



You are asked to write a micro-story beginning with “Through the window, I saw...” using the photo below as inspiration. The only restriction on your creativity is that you keep your micro-story clean. All genres are accepted. Submissions will open July 1-31. Please keep your submission to between 1,000 and 1,500 words. To submit your story fill out the form found on the “Contests” page of our website ( We will not use your micro-stories without your permission and the winner/s will be sent pages for approval. The winner/s will appear in our September 20th Autumn Edition along with the image on this page. Depending on the number of submissions we receive, there will be either winners in several genre categories OR an overall winner. Winners will be announced on August 8th. Each winner or the overall winner will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card and an author feature ($40 value). The winner/s will be decided by the Clean Fiction staff and excerpts of each submission may be used for promotional purposes. We cannot wait to read what you write about this new image and are excited to read your submissions!

For the September 20th Autumn Edition, we will be holding another Cover Art Contest for everyone to enjoy. We will also continue to hold our Cover Art Contest quarterly.


Can a cover DESIGNER participate? Of course. Can an author participate even if they did not design their cover? Yep. Is there a limit on the number of covers that I submit? Please, only send one cover per author/design company. Can you submit a cover that has participated in a previous Cover Art Contest? We ask that you only submit a cover once to one of our contests. What about AI art? As long as a human had a hand in creating part of the cover, it is fine to submit it. Does it matter what genre the book is? No, but keep it clean! 


Submissions will begin July 15 and go through July 27. (Submissions are completely FREE). Submit your cover at the link below. Voting will begin July 29 and go through August 10. (Voting is also FREE). The winner will be announced August 15 in our Newsletter. See our website for the small print. The winner will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card and the other covers will be included in the magazine along with their submission information. The winner will also receive a certificate with a special 3D printed medallion (only within the US).
