The Westchester Review, a literary journal dedicated to supporting and spreading the literary work of New York's Westchester County, is now accepting submissions for our first "Writers Under 30" contest. The rules are as follows:
The contest is open to writers of poetry and fiction who live, work, or study in Westchester County, N.Y., and who are under the age of 30 as of March 15, 2012. Writers who have lived, studied or worked in Westchester County in the past, but who currently do not, are also welcome to submit.
We will award a prize for fiction and another for poetry. Winners will receive $100, publication in our upcoming issue, and two copies of The Westchester Review. Runners-up will be considered for publication. The deadline is March 15, 2012. Writers can submit unpublished work of up to three poems or a short story (5000 word maximum).
Submit your work here with your name, phone and email address in a cover letter. Please write "Contest" in the subject line.
There is a $10 reading fee for each submission, which can be paid through the Pay Pal link on the "Contests" tab of our website. Please direct any inquiries about the contest to:
