|Last Reported||November 1, 2019|
|Description||Prizes offered in poetry, fiction and nonfiction categories. First prize for fiction: $1,000 and publication. First prize for poetry: $500 and publication. First prize nonfiction: $750 and publication.. Limit fiction and nonfiction submissions to 8,000 words or less. Our review seeks nonfiction that involves discovery for the reader and the writer, work that creates a dynamic of mutual construction through literary dialogue. Personal essays, creative nonfiction flash, memoir, and literary reportage are all welcome. For fiction, we're looking for work that is emotionally affecting, haunting, bizarre, and in firm control of the machinations of storytelling (e.g. character, scene, plot, and momentum). We welcome both traditional short stories, flash fiction, and other hybrid forms. Poetry entries may be 5 pages or less. We seek poetic works that capture experience by reinvigorating the language of the everyday, or surprising readers with novel, rarefied text. We are particularly interested in poetry that champions inventive forms and content.|
