2020 Editor’s Reprint Award

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 $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.
