The Missouri Review’s 24th Jeffrey E. Smith Editors’ Prize in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction is now open for submissions. First-place winners in each category receive a prize of $5,000, plus a feature in their spring issue and paid travel to their gala reading and reception in Columbia, Missouri. Contest finalists will receive cash prizes and have their work considered for publication as well.
This opportunity is open to both emerging and established writers—we are most of all concerned with finding strong work. All writers submitting to our contest receive a one-year subscription to The Missouri Review.
They accept submissions online or by mail. The postmark deadline is October 1st, and winners will be announced in January of 2015.
