Solstice Annual Literary Contest in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction
Solstice: A Magazine of Diverse Voices is current reading fiction, poetry, and nonfiction for our Annual Literary Contest, through April 20.
Our judges this year are Richard Blanco (Stephen Dunn Prize in Poetry), Celeste Ng (Fiction Prize), and Michael Steinberg (Non-Fiction Prize).
The entry fee is $18 and winners are awarded $500-$1000 each. Winners as well as finalists will be published in our Summer Awards Issue due out in early August 2016. All entries will be considered for publication.
All writers are eligible to enter, except those who have won in the past, and we strongly encourage writers of color, LGBT writers, and underrepresented writers to submit.
