Contest is open to any student currently enrolled in an MFA creative writing program.

This is a blind read; your name should appear only in the cover letter, and each page of the manuscript should include the title of the piece.

No excerpts will be considered; your submission should be a single and complete piece.

Only one submission per author will be considered.

Please send submission and a cover letter with your name, university, complete contact information and title of the work to:
