Would you like to have your work published in Santa Fe's the awarding-winning alt-weekly? SFR's 2013 Writing Contest is accepting entries until Nov. 1.
This year's theme is Come Quick the Revolution!
It's time for revolution, no? We're using too many resources, treating each other too poorly, expecting too much of our too-corrupt governments and taking too little time to reflect and celebrate what it should mean to be human. What kind of revolution do you envision? What will it look like, feel like, smell like, taste like?
1. The Annual SFR writing contest calls for entries of three kinds of writing: Fiction, Personal Essay and Poetry.
2. All entries MUST be previously unpublished and typed; no handwritten entries will be accepted.
3. Send $5 per entry. Checks or money orders will be accepted through the mail; no cash, please. Send to Writing Contest, Santa Fe Reporter, 132 E Marcy St., Santa Fe, NM 87501. Cash will be accepted at the Reporter office only: 132 East Marcy Street.
4. Judging will be ANONYMOUS, so DO NOT put your name on your entry. You must include a separate sheet with the category (fiction, personal essay or poetry), the title of your piece, your name, address, phone number and email (so we can contact you if you win!).
5. Paid contributors to the Reporter during the past year are not eligible.
6. ALL submissions are due by 5 pm Friday, Nov. 1.
7. First, second and third prizes will be awarded in each category. First-place winners will receive $100 cash and a prize package. Second-place winners will receive a $75 prize package.
