This year's award focuses on creative nonfiction which the award defines as "any of the subgenres of creative nonfiction: memoir or autobiography, essay, literary journalism, profiles of people or places, and so on."

Award amounts range from $5,000 to $10, 000!!!!

Good luck writers! I hope someone from SMSU at least makes honorable mention.

Meta4Magazine Writing Opportunity

I received the following writing opportunity via email early in the week. The magazine sounds like it has more of a literary focus, but I thought some of those with double majors would find this one of interest. Here are the details from the editors themselves:

"Please excuse our intrusion to announce Meta4 Magazine, a new onlineliterary journal. We're currently seeking submissions from writers of allstripes. We humbly ask for your readership, that you share the site withyour students, and that you'll consider contributing some of your own workto this new venture. Thank you for your time."
