Writing Competition for Grad Students: Blue River

Good news from the team at Blue River: we have extended the Blue River Editors’ Prize deadline until August 22, 2016. The submissions we have read so far are exhilarating, and we want more.

Graduate students, continue sending us your very best work! The $500 awards in poetry, fiction and nonfiction are still up for grabs, with winners to be announced in September. Submission fee remains $15. Submit and be a part of a new literary journal that’s dedicated to you, the grad student writer.

You can find our Submittable page here.

Blue River is a non-profit literary journal produced by Creighton University’s MFA program. We seek to build a new tradition: to foster and celebrate contemporary graduate-level creative writers by publishing their fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. In that spirit, we provide our own MFA students with experience in literary editing and production as a preparation for work in the publishing industry.
