It’s summer and you’re busy — and whether “busy” means traveling, working, catching up on some reading, or simply lounging around in a baby pool with a margarita in hand, we get it. Mid-American Review is therefore happy to announce that our Fineline deadline has been extended until June 15 for our MAR friends. (As a reader of our new blog, that includes you!)
The Fineline Competition for Prose Poems, Short Shorts, and Anything In Between is the place to send your best short work. Each piece must be under 500 words; no line breaks in poems, please. Lindsay Hunter judges. First prize is $1,000 and publication in our special 35th anniversary issue. In fact, this issue will celebrate the prose poem/flash form in general, so we hope to publish several Fineline finalists as well as prose poems/short shorts that we accept through our general submission pool. So if you like short, send it to us!
Each Fineline entry packet of up to three pieces costs $10. We suggest you enter online using our submissions manager, but mailed entries are also accepted if received by June 15. Need more info? Go here. Otherwise, we look forward to reading your work!
