      The 2011 Devil's Kitchen Reading Awards in Poetry and Prose

      The Department of English at Southern Illinois University Carbondale
      and GRASSROOTS, SIUC's undergraduate literary magazine, are pleased to
      announce the 2011 Devil's Kitchen Reading Awards. One book of poetry
      and one book of prose (novel, short fiction, or literary nonfiction)
      will be selected from submissions of titles published in 2010, and the
      winning authors will receive an honorarium of $1000 and will present a
      public reading and participate in panels at the Devil's Kitchen Fall
      Literary Festival at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale,
      Illinois. The dates for the 2011 festival will be October 26-28, 2011.
      Travel and accommodations will be provided for the two winners.

      Entries may be submitted by either author or publisher, and must
      include a copy of the book, a cover letter, a brief biography of the
      author including previous publications, and a $15.00 entry fee made out
      to "SIUC - Dept. of English." Entries must be postmarked December 1,
      2010 - February 15, 2011. Materials postmarked after February 15 will
      be returned unopened. Because we cannot guarantee their return, all
      entries will become the property of the SIUC Department of English.
      Entrants wishing acknowledgment of receipt of materials must include a
      self-addressed stamped postcard.

      Judges will come from the faculty of SIUC's MFA Program in Creative
      Writing and the award winners will be selected by the staff of
      GRASSROOTS. The winners will be notified in May 2011. All entrants will
      be notified of the results in June 2011.

      The awards are open to single-author titles published in 2010 by
      independent, university, or commercial publishers. The winners must be
      U.S. citizens or permanent residents and must agree to attend and
      participate in the 2011 Devil's Kitchen Fall Literary Festival to
      receive the award. Entries from vanity presses and self-published books
      are not eligible. Current students and employees at Southern Illinois
      University Carbondale and authors published by Southern Illinois
      University Press are not eligible.
