Cash prize and publication for first and second place
Notes from the Field is a non-fiction contest celebrating writing about experiencewhether that be abroad, on a familiar sidewalk, in one's line of work, in a field of interest, or in the most unexpected of times and settings. We are open to writing about many kinds of experience, and while we are not strictly looking for essays about solely about place or with an environmental focus, as always, we look for work that keeps the tension of surroundings in mind.
