Writing in the Margins
Briarpatch Magazine is now accepting submissions of original, unpublished writing in the categories of short fiction and creative non-fiction for their third annual creative writing contest.
Briarpatch is seeking fresh, creative writing that brings to life issues of political, social, and environmental justice. They want writing from the edges – from new writers who have something important to say, or from longtime writers who can show us a new way of seeing things. They’re looking for bold and courageous writing that pushes the boundaries between fact and fiction, journalism and prose, and that deconstructs tough issues in inventive ways.
Submissions should not exceed 2000 words.
Your $25 entry fee gets you a full year’s subscription to Briarpatch (regularly $28.95). This fee helps to cover the costs of organising, promoting, and administrating the contest, as well as the cash prizes.
U.S. submissions cost $40 and other international submissions cost $45 to cover the additional costs of postage for your subscription.
The deadline for entry is December 1, 2013. Any entries received after midnight Central Standard Time on this date will not be considered.
Receipt of your entry will be confirmed within three business days. Winners will be notified, and their names published on our website, in January.
