Each entry must include name, phone number, and email on cover sheet only, as well as SASE and reading fee.
The Reading Fee is $15 per short story (up to 7500 words) and $15 per group of up to 3 poems. Make checks payable to The University of Alabama. All contestants will also receive a complimentary one-year subscription. That's $1 less than ordering by conventional means.
Black Warrior Review only considers previously unpublished work. Finalists in each category will receive notation in the Spring 2009 issue and are also considered for publication.
