2016 Contest Deadline Extended

Contest Deadline Extended

We have decided to extended our deadline for our 2016 contests to April 1st!

There’s still time to send us your best work! We have no limitations on form or subject matter, though we ask that you familiarize yourself with our journal and our aesthetic before you submit. Please see our Complete Guidelines or our Submittable page for more information.

  • Tobias Wolff Award for Fiction: Sybil Baker, Judge
  • 49th Parallel Award for Poetry: Daniel Tobin, Judge
