No Entry Fee
All award winners and finalists will be published in a digital anthology, available for free on the WTR website in July of 2015. The two award winners will receive a box filled with a small trophy, (gently used) books, (never used) cookies and a check for $250, as well as a one-year subscription to Winter Tangerine Review. All finalists receive our kudos and a one-year subscription to WTR.
We aim to honor new and emerging poets and prose writers who are creating electric work. Submissions will only be accepted from writers who have not yet published a chapbook, novel or collection of any type. We aim to showcase writers based on the merit of their work, rather than the prestige behind their name, so submissions will be read entirely blind. The pieces that our readers love will be forwarded to the judges, poetry judge Ocean Vuong and prose judge Jaquira Diaz. Both judges will review the pieces blindly as well, then create a short list of four finalists and one award winner. The finalists and award winner will receive notification of their award in late June. The winners will be publicly announced on July 1, 2015.
