The Latest Issue of Indiana Review
While The Puritan has its home north of the border, since becoming an online magazine it’s been accessible across the world to anyone who looked. Every quarter the magazine receives hundreds of submissions from American and international writers, and regularly publishes the best fiction, poetry, and non-fiction it gets, wherever it comes from. In 2014, The Puritan published a two-part supplement called “Bridging the Literary Border.” Spearheaded by editor E Martin Nolan, himself a native of Detroit, it was all about exploring the geographic, political, and imaginary boundary that separates Canada and the United States. In that spirit of cross-border cooperation, we’ve been reaching out to magazines based in the United States with upcoming literary contests. For the next little while, the Town Crier will be publishing announcements for literary contests across the border, sparing you the task of slogging through search engines. The Puritan doesn’t see any reason Canadian writers should limit themselves to publications in this country, or why publications here should limit themselves to Canadian-only content. With that in mind, we hope you consider submitting south of the 49th parallel.
With all of that in mind, we’re happy to help announce the opening of the Indiana Review’s next literary contest:
The Indiana Review 2016 1/2 K Prize
Indiana Review’s 2016 1/2 K Prize will be open July 1-August 15. This annual contest asks writers to submit their best work under 500 words, be it fiction, poetry, or creative non-fiction. Aimee Nezhukumatathil will select the winner from a group of finalists. Submit no more than three pieces, each under 500 words, with a $20 reading fee through our online submissions portal. The winner of our contest will receive $1000 and publication in Indiana Review. All entries are considered for publication.
