The winner of 2012 Winter Anthology Contest, judged by Cole Swensen, is Steven Toussaint for selections from his long poem “Fiddlehead”: “the sentient flies,” “and woke in a flood,” and “the sapphirous eye of transits.”
Please send up to 50 pages in any genre (a book or book-length manuscript somewhat over 50 pages is acceptable). Send writings of which you are the sole author and that were not written earlier than 1999. Published and unpublished writings are equally welcome. Two or three poems or a single story or essay are as welcome as entire books. To get a sense of our aesthetics, see our previous volumes. All work will be read by the editors, with finalists judged by Andrew Zawacki. Multiple entries are welcome, as are entries including a mix of genres. We accept entries until January 15th. The final decision will be announced here in late winter 2014. In the event that none of the entries meet our standards, no winner will be declared. The winner will be published in Volume 4 of The Winter Anthology and receive a $1000 honorarium. Finalists will also be considered for publication.
