prose poetry contest: Quiddity
- Quiddity International Literary Journal and Public-Radio Program
Linda Hodge Bromberg Award for Prose Poetry
Prize: 500 USD and publication in the fall/winter 2010 print edition of Quiddity as well as public-radio broadcast (via NPR-member and PRI-affiliate WUIS)
Postmark Deadline: May 3, 2010
Submit your best unpublished prose poem. In honor of the award’s namesake, we are looking for works of extraordinary quiddity, works that remain with us long after we have encountered them.
All entries should include a cover letter with author's name, brief bio, and contact information as well as the title of the work submitted. Neither the author’s name nor any identifying information should appear on the manuscript.
Entry fee is $12 (payments may be made online, or checks may be made payable to Quiddity).
One prose poem per entry, one entry per person: send us your best.
U.S. submissions should include both an email address and a self-addressed, business-size (#10), stamped envelope (SASE). Electronic submissions are not accepted, but international submissions may include, in place of the SASE, an email address to which an electronic response may be sent.
Please know that we do not confirm receipt of work unless it is accompanied by a self-addressed stamped postcard (optional). Canceled checks may be considered confirmation. Entries that do not meet the guidelines will not be considered, and entry fees will not be returned.
All contest submissions that do meet the guidelines will be considered for regular inclusion in the journal.
Work should be previously unpublished; simultaneous submissions with immediate notification are okay, but the contest awards only for FNASR, so works accepted elsewhere will be withdrawn from consideration, and please note: the entry fee will not be returned.
