About

This competition is open to original English language mss in the genres of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. While previously published stand-alone pieces or excerpts may be included in a ms, the ms as a whole must be an unpublished work. Looking for startling, compelling, and beautiful original work. "We’re looking for a fresh, powerful manuscript. Maybe it will overtake us quietly, gracefully defy genres, satisfyingly subvert our expectations, punch us in the mouth page in and page out. We’re interested in both prose and poetry—and particularly work that straddles the lines between genres."

Judged By: Judged by a guest judge each year.

Prize: Prize: $1,000 and 25 contributor copies.
