The Robert Reeves $1,000 Prize in Comic Fiction, judged by distinguished author and editor Daniel Menaker
 
Submit your short comedic fiction (no more than 5,000 words) to The Southampton Review’s first annual Robert Reeves Comic Fiction contest. 
We won’t even try to tell you what we’re looking for! The comic impulse is so widely and variously expressed in fiction that it resists definition. But if your comic muse has led you to a story that you consider a match, throw caution to the wind and send it to us.
 
Entry fee is $15 per submission. Winners will be notified on or before January 15, 2015, and will be honored at the Manhattan launch of TSR: The Southampton Review’s Spring 2015 issue. 
 
Submission Deadline:  October 31st.
 
1st Place: $1000 and publication in the Spring 2015 issue of TSR: The Southampton Review.
Finalist’s stories will be considered for publication in TSR Online.
