Rusty Scythe Publishing seeks previously unpublished short stories and essays to be included in a printed collection, The 2017 Scythe Prize.
The goal of the collection is to celebrate new voices in a rare, printed book that includes both fiction and creative non-fiction from current undergraduate and graduate college students.
Submissions are invited from college students around the world. Last year’s edition saw submissions from 25 countries on 5 continents. There are no formal, genre-specific, or stylistic restrictions. There is no word limit. English is required.
Submissions are collected between February 1 and April 1, 2017 and should be submitted via email as Word or PDF files to the series editor, Eric Forrest, at:
eforrest95ATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
With your attachment, please include your full name and the name of your school.
The top story AND essay will receive a $200 prize. Other selected submissions (45 were selected for print in 2016) will be included in the printed book, due late 2017.
