Summer Creative Nonfiction Contest - Deadline August 1

This is the final week to submit to Prairie Schooner’s annual Summer Creative Nonfiction contest, which is accepting entries until August 1, 2014. Winners receive $250 and publication in the Spring 2015 issue. The entry fee is only $18.00 US, which includes a one-year subscription to the print journal—a $10 savings off the regular rate! Writers may submit multiple entries, but must pay a separate fee for each submission.

We are only considering electronic submissions for our Summer Creative Nonfiction Contest. Click here for full guidelines and to submit via Submittable.

Last year’s contest winner was Melissa Febos (pictured above) for her essay “Call My Name,” appearing in our Spring 2014 issue. Melissa also sat down for an interview with Assistant Nonfiction Editor Sarah Fawn Montgomery, which you can read on the Prairie Schooner blog.
