I can’t believe it’s already October!
Submissions for the Write to Publish 2016 writing contests close on the 30th of this month, so if you have any marvelous Flash Fiction or PNW Poetry pieces, be sure to submit them! I’ve included some of the basic information below, but you can find the rest of the submission guidelines here.
Write to Publish, Ooligan Press’s annual publishing conference, in partnership with the Timberline Review, a literary journal from the Willamette Writers publishing a wide variety of content, and Cirque, a literary journal publishing Alaskan and Pacific Northwest writing, are excited to offer a flash fiction contest and a Pacific Northwest poetry contest this year. Submission for both contests open September 8 and close October 30, 2015.
Entries for the Pacific Northwest poetry contest may be original, unpublished works in any style of poetry up to 40 lines and should be centered on a Pacific Northwest theme. The winning poet will be notified in the first week of December and will win a cash prize of $100, a reading at the conference, and publication in the Timberline Review.
Entries for the flash fiction contest must be 700 words or fewer, original, unpublished, and double spaced. The winning writer will be notified the first week of December and will win a cash prize of $100, a reading at the conference, and publication with Cirque.
The contest fee is $10, and only one story or poem may be submitted per person, per contest. Please send submissions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Flash Fiction Contest Submission” or “PNW Poetry Contest Submission” as the subject line.
We’ve been getting some wonderful submissions thus far, but we want more! I’d love to read some from my writing friends here in the blogosphere. And, if you know of any writers, pass the word onto them, too!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
