In 1981 Lorian Hemingway could non hold dreamed that the little Key West short narrative competition she judged would one twenty-four hours go one of America’s most esteemed literary competitions. That first twelvemonth the competition drew 75 entries from Key West and a few other metropoliss in Florida. Lorian called the victor — a fighting Key West author who had as yet received no acknowledgment for her work— from a wage phone on Little Torch Key. She remembers keeping the phone receiver off from her ear after she had delivered the intelligence as the victor screamed, “I can’t believe it! Me? I won? Are you certainly? ARE YOU SURE? ” When Lorian assured the author that she had so won the adult female began to cry.
“We do non travel by the regulation book, ” says Lorian. “We do non travel by what is in trend. You make a misprint. So what? You don’t set a comma in the right topographic point. So what? This is non what writing is approximately. Writing is basically about the human status in all its variables, and no regulation book can be put to the human status and how it is expressed. How could it be? So many authors have been rejected because they do non suit a certain cast of what is expected of fiction in any given epoch. And this, to me, is really sad so. The single voice of each author carries what he or she wants us to understand about life in all its mutableness. We all bear the necessary cross of being human, but it is finally our humanity that brings away the author in us. It is a beautiful experience to read the entries in our competition. Each entry has its ain typical virtue. So please know that when we read your narratives it is with great regard given to each, and that the award is genuinely ours.”

Sonnets on a Sunday Poetry Contest
Poets of University of Louisville were asked to reexamine a choice of sonnets by Shakespeare and write sonnets “in response” to these. The poets were invited to construe the phrase “in response” nevertheless they saw tantrum: by writing courts, lampoons, thematic analogues, and so on. Some poets straight referenced the sonnets to which they responded, others indirectly referenced those sonnets, and still others made no mention to Shakespeare’s sonnets at all. Ten winning sonnets, all written by U of L pupils, have been chosen for public presentation by the Commonwealth Theatre participants on Sunday, November 13th 2016, 2:00 - 4:00pm at the Louisville Water Tower. The victors are ( in alphabetical order ) : Camille Armstrong: `` Patience '' Michael Baumann: `` I want to discontinue I want to discontinue -- wo n't '' Carolyn Biggs: `` Dog Spirit '' Morgan McGill: `` War '' Stephanie McNamara: `` Please, Do Not Compare Us to a Summer 's Day '' Cameron Murray-Hicks: `` When clip 's unchained manus descends '' Elizabeth Roberts: `` Summer So Lit '' Catherine Sar: `` Shower Sonnet '' Mariam Smith: `` Equally black as snake pit, every bit dark as dark, am I?

The Write Place Novel Competition. This competition has now been cancelled by the boosters ( The Write Place Creative Writing School ) following my remarks about the alleged value of the award ( publication ) and the nature of the publication house ( Pneuma Springs Publishing ) providing it. Although the boosters are faulting me for destroying a worthwhile competition, I consider the cancellation to be their credence that my remarks were spot on. Pneuma Springs Publishing offers services which are deemed by the book trade to be vanity publication. If anyone is ill-defined about the significance and deductions of this term, they should read the free Occasional Paper on Vanity Publishing by the Society of Authors: Click Here.
The Rules, the T & Cs, the Fine PrintWhen you submit a narrative or verse form to a competition, you are come ining into a contract with the booster. Make certain you know the footings. It may be, for case, that you are allowing the booster the right to print your work without payment even if you dont win. This is frequently the monetary value you pay for come ining a competition with no entry fee. If it bothers you, dont participate. But before you get disdainful about that 450-word narrative set in the staid universe of Brassica rapa agriculture, inquire yourself this: Would I truly be able to sell it to anyone else? Publication, even without payment, might non be a bad thing if it gets you a healthy harvest of readers. And if its in a newspaper or magazine that carries some prestigiousness. good, there are plentifulness of fighting authors who would endow wrap and manus over their really souls for the privilege of being able to set that in their curriculum vitae. Merely you can make up one's mind if its worth it.
Hi Michael Just to allow you cognize I was a smuggler up in last years Eyelands short narrative competition. I entered it chiefly because entries were accepted by electronic mail. The chief awards were really generous, as I remember they included picture cameras and computing machines and a notebook which I took to intend a notebook computing machine. I didnt win any of these but I was awarded with distinction and sent a certification to turn out it. I besides received a transcript of the Eyelands anthology which included my narrative. Merely one job its in Greek. I recognised my narrative because it had my name at the top in English. I advise anyone come ining this twelvemonth 's comp to look for the automatic interlingual rendition characteristic in Google - unless of class they understand Grecian! Many thanks for your web site. Always interesting even if I do n't come in one of the comps. - Mary Hodges

Just spent the last hr and a half crafting ( skilfully evidently ) a verse form about bingo for one of the competitions on your site, merely to happen that ( luckless for some, or instead - me ) when I went to e-mail it, it was for UK occupants merely!

As I went to rapidly wipe up up everything, I knocked my phone off the tabular array where it now lies moisture and immobilised. So, to re-evaluate: 1. Check footings and conditions. 2. Don`t make any sudden, dramatic manus motions. 3. Don`t topographic point vino on same surface as computing machine. 4. Don`t topographic point Mobile phone on same surface as wine glass. And eventually, 5. Make certain there`s a trim bottle of vino in electric refrigerator when you go to submerge your sorrows on your time-wasted, expensive, quiet sunday eventide in. - Susan from Dublin

Bristol Short Story Prize. I one time spent a whole twenty-four hours researching Bristol in connexion with a hoarded wealth Hunt but the lone thing I can retrieve about the topographic point now ( aside from the fact that the hoarded wealth was someplace else ) is that adventurer and sailing master John Cabot sailed from at that place, discovered Newfoundland and explored parts of North America before amy other European. Alas, he failed to update his web log with the inside informations, and now, 100s of old ages subsequently, faculty members are still reasoning about it.

Stephen Spender Prize for Poetry Translation ( in association with the Guardian ) . How many readers aged 14 and under does the Guardian have, I wonder?

Hi Before I discovered your website Id ne'er even thought of seeking my fortune in a writing competition.

Dear Michael, I love your web site and its pertinent personal remarks re the comps. I entered the Alexander Cordell one some months ago, the mini saga, and was short-listed to win. It was a 600 stat mi unit of ammunition trip with two yearlings but we had a truly fantastic weekend. My hubby is self employed and works truly long hours so it was great to drag him off and out into the countryside. The people were lovely, the whole event was intriguing, and I was thrilled to acquire two books and a book item. My small girl age 3 gets excited every clip Wales is mentioned on the intelligence now! The greatest bang was hearing the Director of Visit Wales read out my narrative so reverentially, and with apparent enjoyment. The organizers were delighted with the global entries. I dont compose for money - merely every bit good - but for the love of the medium and the message. Keep up the good work! - Julie Noble

*********************************************************************************Notes: Unless otherwise stated in the regulations, all poesy should be single-spaced. The remainder should be double-spaced ( which is to state, dual spacing between the lines, non the words! ) . It is sometimes the instance that your name shouldnt appear on the manuscript. Again, look into the regulations. If you put your name on there after being told non to, youre out. Dont usage coloured paper or fancy founts, and dont direct your manuscript done up like the Queens dinner bill of fare with a fancy gold-tooled leather screen. These things simply announce that you have no assurance in your entry or, worse, that you think the Judgess are shallow plenty to judge on visual aspect instead than content. Plain white A4 80gsm paper is the material to utilize, with apparent black typewriting or print. Write on one side of the sheet merely ( unless asked to set your reference on the dorsum ) .
Before you start writing, let me to present you to an old friend The Typo Goblin I am the Typo Goblin, my bosom is made of flint, My function in life is merely this: to maintain you out of print. I sneak into your manuscript and make my demonic work, Adding mistakes guaranteed to do you look a berk. And so I cast the Careless enchantment: you say, Ah, what the heck! And start your book into the station without that concluding cheque. At length some hapless editor receives your aureate humor, And after reading 50 words he writes it off as. unpublishable. - Michael Shenton
