Two New Nonfiction Contests, One Quite Brief
February 24, 2012 § 3 Comments
Chautauqua’s spring contest now open — flash fiction, micro-essays, prose poems. Send us your best work in 750 words or fewer. Remember our theme: journeys and pilgrimages. Journeys and pilgrimages mean more than tales of travel and the open road. We are seeking works that explore what it means to encounter difference—of personal, social, political, spiritual, and aesthetic importance. $20 fee. Submit through April 15, 2012. Prize $1000.00 and publication. Judge: Luke Whisnant
