Fugue is proud to announce its 11th annual writing contest. This year we will be accepting submissions of poetry and prose (fiction and nonfiction).

Submissions will be accepted January 1, 2012 through May 1, 2012. 

To submit your work, send an email with the subject line: "11th annual contest submission" to:

 fugue-poetry(at) or:

fugue-fiction(at) or

fugue-nonfiction(at) (replace (at) with @ when sending email)

Include your submission (3-5 poems (ten page max) or 1 essay/story (8,000-word max)) in the body of the email AND as an attachment (.docx or .doc only, please) along with a SHORT bio, and include your contest fee confirmation number (or include that number in a separate email).

 Please note that the contest entry fee is $15, which covers the cost of reading ONE submission. Contestants are welcome to submit more than once, but each submission must be accompanied by a payment of the entry fee.
