The Levis Reading Prize #writing #Prize #Levi #Reading #Competition #Virginia

The Levis Reading Prize is presented on behalf of VCU’s M.F.A. in Creative Writing Program. Sponsors include the VCU Department of English, the VCU Libraries, the VCU Honors College, Barnes & Noble @ VCU and the VCU College of Humanities and Sciences, with additional funding provided by the family of Larry Levis.

Entries may be submitted by either author or publisher, and must include three copies of the book (48 pages or more), a cover letter, and a brief biography of the author including previous publications. (Entries from vanity presses or self-publishing entities are not eligible.) The book must have been published in North America in the previous calendar year. Entrants wishing acknowledgment of receipt must include a self-addressed stamped postcard.

The annual entry deadline is now Febuary 1st. Materials received after that date will be returned unopened. Because we cannot guarantee their return, all entries will become the property of the VCU Department of English.

Judges come from faculty of the VCU Department of English and MFA Program in Creative Writing.

The winner receives an honorarium of $2000 and are invited, expenses paid, to Richmond to present a public reading in the following fall.

To enter, please send materials to:
