2009 Teresa A. White Literary Award--deadline August 1

500 and public-radio broadcast feature for 500 (or fewer) words!

Quiddity international literary journal and public-radio program is pleased to announce the Teresa A. White Literary Award. The 2009 award is affectionately referred to as the “buck-a-word” contest.

First Prize: $500 and publication in the Spring/Summer 2010 print issue of Quiddity as well as public-radio broadcast (via WUIS, NPR member and PRI affiliate)

Honorable mentions may also be offered publication and broadcast.

Contest begins March 1, 2009, and ends August 1, 2009 (postmark deadline).

Submit one work of prose totaling no more than 500 words (title included) as well as $12 payable to Quiddity.

U.S. submissions should include both an email address and a self-addressed, business-size (#10), stamped envelope (SASE). International submissions should include an email address to which an electronic reply may be sent.

Work should be previously unpublished; simultaneous submissions with immediate notification are okay, but the contest awards only for FNASR, so works accepted elsewhere will be withdrawn from consideration, and please note: the entry fee will not be returned.

All entries must be typed and must include a cover letter with author's name and contact information (address, telephone, and email address) as well as the title and word count of the work submitted. The author’s name or any identifying information should not appear on the manuscript

Entries that do not meet the guidelines will not be considered, and entry fees are not refundable.

All contest submissions will be considered for regular inclusion in the journal.

Winners will be announced by September 1, 2009.
