As fall approaches, so does the deadline for writers to enter the Dogwood Literary Prizes. Enter by September 5th! Winners in the three genres of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction will be chosen by judges in each genre; a grand prize winner will then be chosen from among those three. The grand prize winner will receive $1000, and the remaining two genre winners will receive $250 each. All finalists for the prize, chosen in a blind review process, will be offered publication in Dogwood 16, to be published in late spring 2017.
Because September 5 is Labor Day and a postal holiday, manuscripts mailed with a postmark of September 6 will be accepted, or you may use our online submission manager for your submissions until midnight on September 5.
In lieu of electronic submission, work can be mailed no later than a postmark of September 6 to Dogwood, Dept. of English, 1073 N. Benson Rd., Fairfield, CT 06824. We ask that the submission itself be anonymous with a cover letter that mentions your name and the name of the piece for later identification. Complete guidelines can be found here.
Share your work with us! We look forward to a fall spent reading.
