Short short story contest (no fee): Shenandoah

As you may know, we no longer publish writing contests on this blog unless they have no fee. Here is a no-fee contest! Thank you, Shenandoah for not charging writers to submit their work.

The Bevel Summers Prize in the Short Short Story is open to all authors of stories of up to 1,000 words. Stories should be sent to Bevel Summers/Shenandoah, Mattingly House, 2 Lee Ave., Washington and Lee University, Lexington, VA 24450 and must be received by March 31.

Send two copies, one with name and contact information, including e-mail address, and a duplicate with no identifying information, along with an sase for notification. The winner will receive a $250 prize and be featured prominently on Shenandoah's first online issue. There is no entry fee for the 2011 contest. A judge has not yet been selected.

Call for poetry submissions: Poemeleon

Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry is celebrating its 5th year in operation!

We have dubbed our next issue, Volume V Issue 2, The Open Issue, scheduled for launch June 2011. Unlike past issues, The Open Issue is not focused on any one particular kind of poetry but instead will strive to include as wide a variety as possible. Please send only your best work, any length, any style.

Deadline for this issue: March 31, 2011

Expect a response within 1 - 3 months after close of submissions. If you have not heard from us after 3 months please inquire.

Please visit the website for complete guidelines and a link to our submission manager, and while you're there check out our latest issue, Prime Time Poetry, featuring the work of Prime Time Poets Tony Barnstone, Robert Pinsky, Molly Peacock, Red Shuttleworth, Mark Halliday, David Kirby, David Graham, Martha Silano, and many others!
