Contest: Cincinnati Review Robert and Adele Schiff Prose and Poetry Prizes
The Cincinnati Review invites submissions for the fourth annual Robert and Adele Schiff Prose and Poetry Prizes. One winning poem and one prose piece (fiction or creative nonfiction) will be chosen for publication in our 2013 prize issue, and winning authors will receive $1,000 each. All entries will be considered for publication in The Cincinnati Review.
Writers may submit up to 8 pages of poetry or 40 pages of prose, per entry. Previously published manuscripts, including works that have appeared online (in any form) will not be considered. There are no restrictions as to form, style, or content; all entries will be considered for publication. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable under the condition that you notify us if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere.
Entry fee is $25, which includes a one-year subscription to The Cincinnati Review. All entries will receive equal consideration. Checks should be made payable to University of Cincinnati.
Submissions will be accepted by mail in June and July (postmarked). We will be accepting online entries as well, but we are still working on configuring our submission manager to enable payment for contest fees. Visit www.cincinnatireview.com/submissions for updates on that effort.
Entries must include a cover letter with the writer's name, mailing address, telephone number, email, and the title(s) of the work(s) submitted. Please do not include the writer's contact info on the rest of the manuscript, as submissions will be judged blindly.
