Entry Fees

$3 USD for one entry; $4 USD for two entries; and $5 USD for three entries

Prizes

Two winners will receive $75 USD each, and publication in Issue 7 of MacQueen's Quinterly online. Several Finalists will also be published in Issue 7.

Description

Submit up to three unpublished ekphrastic works written in the English language and no longer than a thousand words each—whether fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or a poetic hybrid. Entries must be written in response to our visual prompt,”The Chains That Free Us,” a photograph by Cindy L. Sheppard. We’re looking for polished and evocative literary works of multiple genres. For this ekphrastic challenge, we will also consider sequences of micro-poems like haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka, and cherita, as well as hybrid combinations.
