New Writer Awards Deadline: Oct. 15 *one month remains*
Sequestrum is accepting submissions for the 2015 New Writer Awards, in which hundreds in cash will be awarded to up-and-coming voices in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. For complete details visit our website and select your genre.
Open only to writers who have not yet published a book-length manuscript of fiction, poetry, or creative nonfiction.
Prose and poetry will be judged separately, with one first-prize winner in each genre.
One first-prize winner in each genre (one fiction/nonfiction, one poetry) will receive $200 plus publication in our Spring ’16 issue.
Runners-up in each genre will be awarded publication and receive payment at our usual rates (plus a little extra). Over $500 in total prizes.
Winners and runners-up will appear in the Spring '16 Issue of Sequestrum.
We're always accepting subscriber submissions too . Use the quarterly coupon code "WriteLit" to receive a 50% discount on your first subscription cycle, and brush up on what we publish. Go here to subscribe.
We average 1,000+ readers a month, keep our archives open at pay-what-you-can subscriptions, are a paying market, and pair all our publications with stunning visual arts created by outside artists or our staff. Our contributors range from award-winning novelists and poets (with other works featured in publications including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Glimmer Train, PANK, The Kenyon Review, many other university periodicals, and Best American Anthologies) to emerging voices and first-time writers.
We're proud of our little plot on the literary landscape and the writers and artists we share it with.
