2020 Editor’s Reprint Award

Submissions Closed Due to Submission Volume.

Every year we run an experiment that is generally left untouched by publishers. Among traditional journals, it’s strictly taboo. An editor’s no-no. An unspoken gentlemen’s agreement sealed with a handshake in the backrooms of literary Geneva Conventions everywhere.

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to republish some unsolicited literature.

Our Editor’s Reprint Awards will award a total of $1000 to writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Prose and poetry are judged separately, with a first-prize winner and runners-up in each genre.

Please select a genre for complete guidelines.
