literary contest: Wag's Revue
- Wag's Revue is currently only accepting submissions for its Winter Contest. Please read the guidelines below carefully before submitting. The editors also strongly suggest that writers read the magazine to gain a sense of it prior to submitting (all issues are free and available online and as downloads).
Wag's Revue invites you to enter its Winter 2011 Contest in fiction, poetry, and essays. Submissions of electronic writing are also encouraged in any of the above genres. First prize receives $1,000 and publication in Wag's Revue; second prize is $500, third is $100, and all submissions are considered for publication. The contest deadline is January 15, and winners will be announced with the publication of Issue 9 in April 2011. There is no limit to the number of entries an author may submit, but each entry must be accompanied with its own submission fee of $20.
Submissions of poetry may include multiple poems but should not exceed 10 pages. Fiction and essay submissions should not exceed 10,000 words. All submissions should be previously unpublished. Wag's Revue asks for first serial rights to all published work; all other rights revert to the author upon publication. Please make sure to remove your name and any contact info from the document you upload so that we may judge every entry anonymously. Wag's Revue complies with the CLMP code of ethics.
