We're starting to get the submissions trickling in, and it's not too late to submit yours. We want to challenge each of you to really stretch your limits. Do something different and push the boundaries that we unconsciously confine ourselves in. If you have a current short that you are working on, try and write a separate version from an opposing viewpoint. It could be either from the same character or from a completely different character's perspective. Set it in a different location.
We want you all to succeed. That's what we're here for. We want to shape your art into everything it can be, and reach it's full potential. This writing contest will be a way for you to explore our options and gives a good ol' test run. So send your submissions in today!
Deadline to submit: March 1st, 2015
To kick off our launch, and to give you all a feel for what to expect out of the Mason J. Press and the Review, we're hosting a contest. This is open to all ages and genres (with the exception of erotica and fanfiction). These include but are not limited to Fiction, Non-fiction, Poetry, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Technical essays, Personal essays, Memoirs, etc. We encourage Poetry entries to include a collection of poetry to be judged as a whole work. Submissions must be typed and emailed to the firstname.lastname@example.org with the work attached in .pdf or .doc format. Please no submissions longer than 50 pages.
Our winners will be the top 10 submissions regardless of category. These artists will be featured on our artists page and will have their work edited and published on the Mason J. Review. The number one finalist will receive a handcrafted book with their work published within it.
(If you are a college student or high school student, or even just looking to boost your resume, this is an excellent way to do so!)
