Petite and Potent: Sonora Review’s flash nonfiction contest
May 7, 2015 § Leave a comment
Sonora Review is seeking submissions for its Miniature Nonfiction Contest through May 15th (and they allow 50 more words than those stingy editors at Brevity).
If we can agree that the truth cannot be told head on, how then will you evoke the truth in less than 800 words? How much history can you squeeze into one seemingly small scene? How far can you send a simple exchange rippling? Petite and potent. That’s what Sonora Review’s flash nonfiction contest is all about.
$1000 and publication in Issue 68 of Sonora Review will be awarded for our annual essay contest judged by Amy Leach, author of the essay collection Things that Are.
Hybrid work is welcome, but each entry must be a complete story/essay unto itself. All finalists will also be considered for publication in Issue 68. Entry fee is $15. Include a cover letter with full name, title of work, mailing and email address, and phone number. The author’s name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript. Submissions must be previously unpublished. http://sonorareview.submishmash.com/Submit
