The Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review is accepting submissions for our Gertrude Stein Award in Fiction. Eckleburg is a print and online literary and arts journal housed in Johns Hopkins University, M.A. in Writing Program. Our aesthetic is eclectic—anything from literary mainstream to experimental. We’re in love with fusion forms such as magical realist, surrealist, meta-realist, and anything with an offbeat spin!
We are accepting stories of 8000 words or less. Stories must be submitted online and in manuscript form. Multimedia submissions (visual that includes text) are welcome. No film or audio.
Entry fee is $10. Award-winning manuscripts will receive $1000 and publication in The Doctor T. J. Eckleburg Review. Finalists and Honorable Mentions will be listed with titles and author names. Eckleburg’s online content receives 4,000 monthly visitors. This is a wonderful opportunity for emerging writers to break into the literary scene.
This year, the contest will be judged by Cris Mazza. Mazza’s first novel, How to Leave a Country, won the PEN/Nelson Algren Award for book-length fiction. Her fiction has been reviewed numerous times in The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, and The Los Angeles Times Book Review, among many others.
Deadline for submissions is New Year’s Eve 2013, midnight.
