Huff/Post50 Fiction: Seeking Short Stories

Calling all fiction writers 50 and older! Huff/Post50 is seeking short-story submissions from our readers. We believe storytelling is a powerful art form and tool for self-expression, and we have a feeling there’s a lot of hidden writing talent among our audience just waiting to be discovered.

Since October 2011, Huff/Post50 has provided a unique platform for bloggers to explore the issues and ideas that matter most to Post50s. Now we'd like to extend this opportunity to fiction writers. Of course, you are welcome to write on any topic, including subjects that have nothing to do with age.

The rules: You must be 50 or older to enter. Writers can submit only one story per year, and all pieces must be 5,000 words or less. Please send your original submissions, as well as your contact details, to We can’t wait to hear from you and showcase the best work!

Rita Wilson is an actor, singer, producer and Huff/Post50's editor at large.
