This is an ongoing competition, and writers can submit stories over multiple issues.
ighthouse will contact selected authors for revisions (if necessary), but stories do not officially win the contest until the story is approved by the editorial staff at Wild Blue Yonder.
If none of the contest entries is deemed suitable by Lighthouse or if Wild Blue Yonder decides, for any reason, not to publish the story we select, Lighthouse reserves the right to solicit fiction from non-entrants, including but not limited to faculty, staff, and students at Lighthouse. In such cases, the contest resumes with the subsequent issue. Every good faith effort is made to select winning, suitable stories from the entry pool.
