Epiphany is partnering with the Authors Guild to honor and support outstanding emerging literary voices and bring visibility to the writers of our future by choosing eight breakout student writers. Applications will be submitted by individual writers. They must include a creative work and a “Statement of Interest” including the author’s enrollment status and university, and an email address and telephone number for the department head of the student’s program of study. Manuscripts may be a single work of short fiction, novel excerpt, or work of creative nonfiction of no more than thirty double-spaced pages, or up to five poems. The author’s name should NOT appear on the creative manuscript. All entries must be submitted via Submittable. The entry fee of $10 can be paid via Submittable to subsidize administrative costs associated with the application review.

Honorees will be selected blind on the basis of the work’s creative merit by a judging panel made up of Alexander Chee and Hannah Tinti, and Epiphany Editor-in-Chief Tracy O’Neill.
