Fugue's Annual Writing Contest is currently open!
Fugue's Annual Writing
Submission Period: Fugue's Annual Writing Contest is currently open! We are accepting submissions of both poetry and prose (fiction and nonfiction). The submission period will be open from January 1, 2014 – April 1, 2014.
The Prize: After the contest closes, the judges (Cate Marvin (poetry), Kevin Canty (prose)) will select the top three entries in both poetry and prose, including the contest winners. The first place prose and poetry contest winners will each be featured in Fugue’s summer/fall print issue and receive $1,000. Runners-up will also be considered for publication.
Submission Instructions: In order to submit, click this link to our Submittable page. Depending upon whether you submit prose or poetry, make the appropriate selection: “2014 Poetry Contest” or “2014 Prose Contest”. Include a brief cover letter in the text box, and then upload your submission—either one essay/story or no more than three poems—in a single .rtf, .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. To complete your submission, pay the $15.00 submission fee. This fee is used to provide convenient services like Submittable and to pay our contributors for their work. If you would like to submit multiple contest entries in either genre, please do so. Each entry must be submitted separately with a paid submission fee for each. Failure to follow these instructions could result in your submission being returned unread.
*All contest submissions will be considered for publication in addition to the contest. Fugue does not accept entries from former students or faculty members of the University of Idaho within the last 10 years.
Submissions are accepted online only. Poetry, Fiction and Nonfiction submissions are accepted September 1 through April 1. All material received outside of this period will neither be read nor considered for publication. General submissions must be submitted along with a required submission fee of $2.00 per submission to help pay for online submission services. Multiple submissions will be considered with a separate submission fee for each. All contributors to Fugue receive payment, via check, for their work and two complimentary copies of the journal in which their work appears.
Please send no more than six poems, two short-shorts, one story, or one essay per submission.
Submissions in more than one genre should be submitted separately and require separate submission fees. We consider simultaneous submissions (submissions sent concurrently to another journal or journals) as long as you notify us immediately if a piece you submitted simultaneously has been accepted elsewhere. We try to respond to submissions within 2-4 months, though this varies in the middle and at the end of submission periods when submission volumes are high.
