Puerto del Sol Contest

Dear submitters and readers,

The editors of Puerto del Sol are excited to announce that we are currently holding our magazine’s first contest in poetry and fiction after several decades of publication. The poetry category will be judged by Julie Carr, author of Sarah–Of Fragments and Lines, 100 Notes on Violence, and Mead: An Epithalamion. The fiction category will be judged by Dawn Raffel, author of Further Adventures in the Restless Universe, In the Year of Long Division, and Carrying the Body.

The entry fee is $15, and includes a copy of our upcoming double-issue. Fiction submissions are limited to one piece of no more than 10,000 words per entry. Poetry submissions are limited to three poems of no more than two pages per entry. Prizes for fiction and poetry will be $400 for first place, $100 for second place, and $50 for third. The winning manuscripts will be published in our 2011 double issue, side-by-side with a selection of today’s most exciting writing and art. All submissions will be considered for publication. Please see puertodelsol.org/submit for further details and guidelines.

Please also note that our new issue, which features the work of writers like Rick Moody, Joshua Cohen, Grace Krlanovich, Sam Pink, Annie Finch, Kate Greenstreet, and many others, is currently on sale at the website (puertodelsol.org), to be shipped as soon as it returns from the printer.

We’re looking forward to reading your work!

Thank you for your support,
The editors of Puerto del Sol
