Frantic that you missed our extended deadline for the Fiction and Poetry Contests? Have no fear, the double extended deadline is here! Okay, cheesy, but your winning short story or poem won’t be! The new double extended deadline is February 1st! We’re excited to give you a little more time to send us your best short stories and poems for our amazing judges, Lee Maracle and Kayla Czaga.
The prizes this year total a whopping $5000 collectively! That’s $1500 for first place, $600 for first runner-up, and $400 for second runner-up in either category. Your entry fee also gets you a one-year subscription to PRISM or an extension of an existing subscription.
Want to know what our judges are looking for? Here’s an interview with Poetry Contest Judge Kayla Czaga on Pageantry and Poetry.
We’re looking forward to see more of your short stories and poems over the next seven days! And if you’ve already submitted, we have an additional poem and story option that’s only $5!
