The Missouri Review‘s Jeffrey E. Smith Editor’s Prize
Three winners, one per genre (poetry, fiction, and nonfiction) will each receive $5,000 and publication in the journal. Finalists will receive $100 and be considered for publication.
Submission info: You can enter online or by mail. There is a fee of $20 per submission, but this includes a one-year subscription to the journal, and entrants can choose between the print edition or the new digital format; the latter offers additional audio content and leaves a smaller carbon footprint. Submissions should be no longer than 25 pages of poetry or prose.
Deadline: October 1st, 2009.
Further details and submissions guidelines are available at the Missouri Review‘s website.
