2013 Mid-American Review Fineline Competition

There’s still time to enter your Prose, Poems (no line breaks), Short Shorts and Anything In Between.  Postmark deadline has been extended to June 15, 2013!


Final Judge: Richard Garcia

First Prize: $1,000 and publication in MAR Volume XXXIV, Number 1.

Ten finalists: Notation and possible publication

Contest is for previously unpublished work only—if the work has appeared in print or online, in any form or part, or under any title, or has been contracted for such, it is ineligible and will be disqualified. There is a 500-word limit for each poem or short. A $10 entry fee (check or money order, made out to Mid-American Review) is required for each set of three prose poems/short short stories. Entry fees are non-refundable. All participants will receive Mid-American Review v. XXXIII, No. 1, where the winners will be published. Submissions will not be returned; send SASE for early results. Manuscripts need not be left anonymous. Contest is open to all writers, except those associated with the judge or Mid-American Review, past or present. Our judge’s decision is final.

Note: All pieces submitted in verse form—i.e., poetry with line breaks—will be automatically disqualified, as will previously published work or pieces over 500 words.

For online submissions and online payment, please use our Submissions Manager.

Send all entries with check or money order to:

Mid-American Review, Department of English, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH 43403
