Submit to The Cupboard’s Fourth-Ever Contest - deadline March 30, 2014
The Cupboard is a quarterly pamphlet of creative prose published in Lincoln, Nebraska. Each volume features a body of work by a single author.They are running a writing Contest. And as always, one winning manuscript will be published as a volume of The Cupboard and its author will receive $500 and contributor’s copies. We’re incredibly excited to announce our judge this year: it’s Alissa Nutting!
Entry period is February 1 through March 30, 2014. Entry fee: $10. And since it was a popular option last year, we’re again offering a subscription discount with your contest submission. (Subscriptions will begin with the winning pamphlet.)
Please submit manuscripts between 4,000 and 10,000 words here. Submissions can comprise one piece or many. The entire manuscript should not have been published previously, but if individual pieces have appeared elsewhere, please include an acknowledgments page. We do not publish verse poetry. All submissions will be read blind so do not include your name or contact information anywhere on the manuscript, but do include this information in your cover letter. Simultaneous and multiple submissions are fine, though each submission will require the $10 fee. All submissions will be considered for general publication.
If you have any questions, please email them at cupboard [at] thecupboardpamphlet [dot] org.
