Both F. Scott and Zelda were known as short story writers. F. Scott published more than a hundred during his twenty-year career, and Zelda began writing as early as high-school.
One of the Fitzgerald Museum's missions is to encourage short story writing as an art form, both for its own merits, and the importance is has towards the practice of writing novels. We do that annually by way of a short-story "Literary Contest," which offers cash prizes to high school students, college students, and their instructors.
More information on the dates and parameters for the 2017 Fitzgerald Museum Literary Contest will be announced in the coming months.
