Profane is a print journal that publishes poems, essays, and stories. Our reading period runs through July 31st.
In addition to being in print, all of our past issues are available on our website to read for free (you can also listen to most of the authors read their pieces, as well).
To find out more about what our journal's all about, check us out at our website.
We're also running both a nonfiction and fiction contest this year.
The Profane Nonfiction Prize ($1,000) is being judged by Elena Passarello, author of Animals Strike Curious Poses (out now from Sarabande Books).
The Profane Fiction Prize ($1,000) is being judged by Devin Murphy, author of the forthcoming novel The Boat Runner (due out in August from Harper Perennial).
Entrants are permitted to submit up to 2 pieces in each contest, up to 7,500 cumulative words.
