I wrote a short story that's 9135 words long. I'd like to enter it into a contest or publishing. I have seen that most only accept stories from 500-2000 words. Does anyone know of any contests/publishers that take that length of a story? It's fiction by the way.
It sounds like you have more of a novella, or mini novel. Try looking for novella contests or publishing opportunities.
- W.W. Norton Publishes an anthology called the Norton Reader every year.
- Reedsy has opportunities
- The Kindle Store can publish anything, really
Really, you could just research publishers like you normally would, but as a short story author, rather than a novelist. There are plenty of publishers that work with that kind of material.
