Fugue 8th Annual Poetry and Prose Contest

16 January 2009

The editors at Fugue, the literary journal from the University of Idaho, are pleased to announce our 8th Annual Poetry and Prose Contest, which awards its first-place winners with $1000 in prize money and publication in Fugue, with publication for 2nd and 3rd place finishers. This year, we will be reading for nonfiction and poetry. We’re excited about our two accomplished judges: Patricia Hampl (nonfiction) and BH Fairchild (poetry). See below for details about how to participate–it couldn’t be easier!

Submissions for nonfiction may be up to 10,000 words, and poetry submissions may include up to three poems or five pages. Send your submission, along with a $20 reading fee, which includes a 1 year subscription to the journal, to Fugue: 200 Brink Hall, University of Idaho, PO Box 441102, Moscow Idaho 83844-1102. Clearly mark your entry Poetry Contest or Nonfiction Contest, and be sure to include a SASE if you’d like to receive the contest results. The postmark deadline for submissions is May 1, 2009.

If you’d like a sample copy of our newest issue (with contest winners from 2008), we’re happy to send you one for $8. You can also visit our website at www.uidaho.edu/fugue. Thank you for your attention, and we hope to have the pleasure of reading your work in the spring.
