2008 Nonfiction Bonanza
This prize is for NONFICTION ONLY.
We will accept submissions for the contest from September 15th, 2007 through March 31st, 2008. To be considered for the $250 Editor's Prize, simply
send us 7500 words or less of your finest literary nonfiction along with
a check for $10 made payable to UNO FOUNDATION.
You may submit as many essays to the contest as you like, but each essay must be accompanied by a $10 check.
While we have no preference for subject matter, as always, we do not accept scholarly papers nor will we accept submissions from UNO students or faculty. Friends and relatives of the judges (our nonfiction editors) may not enter the contest.
Manuscripts should have a cover page with the author's name, the title of the piece, and all contact information, including phone and email address.
The rest of the manuscript should be free of any identifying information except the title, which should appear next to the page number on every page.
Please consult our general Submission Guidelines for formatting information.
SUBMISSION TIP: If you don't have an email address, get one now, as this is how we contact all our authors.
The winner's name as well as the title of the winning piece will be posted on this website. Winner will receive $250 and will be published in the Fall 2008 issue of Bayou Magazine.
The Nonfiction Bonanza is an editor's prize and will be chosen by Bayou's nonfiction editors. The editors are a collaborative team made up of the students and faculty of the M.F.A. in nonfiction program at The University of New Orleans.
