No Agrarian Prose! Pardon the Interruption

June 10, 2011 § 2 Comments


We are, quite frankly, scratching our heads here.  Can anyone make sense of this, given the numbers of book prize contests run each year?

NOTICE: The Richard M. Thorson Literary Prize for Agrarian Prose has been cancelled

The press cancelled the contest because the press learned that some U.S. states do not allow consideration in a skill contest; that is, no entry fee or other consideration may be charged. This surprised us, of course, because we modeled the contest after so many others (http://www.pw.org/grants) that do charge fees for entrance.
