Submit up to 20 pages of prose (double-spaced) or 10 pages of poetry (double or single; one poem or several). Work must be previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are fine assuming you inform us of acceptance elsewhere. All submissions will also be considered for the Tim McGinnis Award, given for the most surprising and unusual work of the year.
Manuscripts must include a cover page listing your name, address, e-mail address and/or telephone number, and the title of each work, but your name should not appear on the manuscript itself.
Enclose a $15 entry fee (checks payable to The Iowa Review). Add $10 (for a total of $25) to receive a yearlong subscription to the magazine.
Label your envelope as a contest entry. For example: "Contest: Fiction."
Postmark submissions between January 1 and January 31, 2008.
Enclose a #10 SASE for final word on your work. Enclose a SAS postcard if you wish confirmation of our receipt of your entry.
No electronic submissions.
