The Cincinnati Review online submissions manager.
The Cincinnati Review invites submissions for the annual Robert and
Adele Schiff Prose and Poetry Awards. One winning poem and prose piece
(fiction or creative nonfiction) will be chosen for publication in our
2014 prize issue, and winning authors will receive $1000 each. All
entries will be considered for publication in The Cincinnati Review.
Writers may submit up to 8 pages of poetry or 40 pages of prose, per
entry. Previously published manuscripts, including works that have
appeared online (in any form) will not be considered. There are no
restrictions as to form, style, or content; all entries will be
considered for publication. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable
under the condition that you notify us if your manuscript is accepted
Entry fee is $20, which includes a one-year subscription to The
Cincinnati Review. We will be accepting submissions only through our
online submission manager, so contestants will pay the fee through that
system. Please do not include the writer’s name or any identifying
information in the manuscript file, as submissions will be judged
blindly. Instead, insert a cover letter with the writer’s name, mailing
address, telephone number, email, and the title(s) of the work(s)
submitted in the “comments” section of the online submission manager.
Note to international entrants: Our payment gateway requires you to
enter a US state or territory as part of your address. Pick one at
random—your payment will not be processed otherwise.
All entries will receive equal consideration.
Submissions will be accepted through our online submission manager from June 1 to July 15.
Winners will be notified October 1, and an announcement will appear on
our website and in the Winter 2014 issue. Winning entries will be
published in the Summer 2014 issue.
