The Body Silent: Call for CNF Essays

September 29, 2011 § 1 Comment

Drunken Boat seeks nonfiction on illness and the body, works that put into words that which cannot be named.

In the tradition of “HIV, Mon Amour” by Tory Dent and “The Two Kinds of Decay” by Sarah Manguso, we’re seeking works that articulate the varied experiences of the body.

This folio will be guest-edited by Suzanne Paola. 

Deadline: November 1, 2011.

Barthelme Prize for Short Prose

June 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

We don’t have the energy to re-write the press release, and anyway, all of the info is here, so excuse us.  If anyone wants to rewrite the press release in the comments section, feel free:


Gulf Coast is happy to announce that the 2011 Barthelme Prize for Short Prose is now open for entries!

No matter what you call it–flash fiction, prose poems, micro-essays–send us your work of 500 words or fewer. The winner will receive $1,000 and will be published in the issue of Gulf Coast due out in Spring 2012, along with the two runners-up.

Last year we were happy to publish three excellent pieces of short prose by Lillian-Yvonne Bertram (2010’s winner), Benjamin Glass, and Robert Thomas. These three pieces, along with an introduction by last year’s judge Joe Bonomo, are available on our website.

Entries are due August 31, 2011 and each entrant will receive a one-year subscription to Gulf Coast. We’re asking that all entries this year come to us via our easy-to-use online submission manager.

This year’s judge will be poet, essayist, and story writer Sarah Manguso.
