THE MARROW AWARD FOR SHORT NONFICTION - Deadline August 15, 2014

The editors at Rawboned are pleased to announce our annual writing contests for Short Nonfiction and Flash Fiction (see details for each category below). Finalists will be chosen by our editors. Guest judges (TBA) will choose winners. Cash prizes for winners and runner-ups. All finalists will be offered publication in our September 1, 2014 special contest issue, as well as inclusion in our first ever print edition (out January 2015). Entries will be accepted June 1 to August 15, through our Submittable page. Please read (and follow) all guidelines before submitting.

Note: Regular submissions are 750 words or less. Contest entries must be500 words or less.


THE MARROW AWARD FOR SHORT NONFICTION:

Entries must be 500 words or less and consider (in some way) the theme of “food”. We are looking for lean, compelling narratives; recipes loaded with family tales; unique takes on what food means or does; any nonfiction piece that considers food in some way–surprise us!


THE COMPASS POINT AWARD FOR FLASH FICTION:

Entries must be 500 words or less and have something to do with the theme of “place”. We are looking for intense prose about home, travel, regions, or even watersheds–anything to do with place (or the people/animals/ideas/plants/feelings/whatever that inhabit that place).
