Grand Prize: $1000 and online publication; Two (2) Runners Up: Highfield Press gifts.
The Highfield Press Summer 2015 Essay Contest is open! We invite writers to submit an unpublished essay (500-1000 words) inspired by the theme, “Summer Reflections” and the given photo. We love the abstract shapes and colors reflected in the gentle waves of the inspiration photo, below. Does it remind you of a romantic lakeside story? A fun pool party? Or an ill-fated day at sea? We’d love to hear your spin on a story inspired by our photo. Submission may be a personal essay, memoir, narrative nonfiction, commentary, travel piece, historical account, biography or short story. Deadline: July 15, 2015. $1,000 Grand Prize and online publication. Two runners up receive Highfield Press gifts. Writers retain all rights.
