The Jeffrey E. Smith Editor's Prize Competition

I  got news about this contest the other day by email and thought I'd share it with you. I'm thinking about entering it myself, but I'll be happy if you win too! Drop me a line if you do--I'd love to hear.
Dear Writer,

I wanted to remind you about an exciting prize and publication opportunity available through The Missouri Review. There’s one month left to submit to our Jeffrey E. Smith Editor’s Prize Competition--for which we offer over $15,000 in prizes. We accept submissions in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Winners in each category receive a prize of $5,000, plus a feature in our Spring issue and paid travel to our gala reading and reception. Contest finalists will receive cash prizes and have their work considered for publication as well.

While the contest has a postmark deadline of October 1st of this year, we encourage early submissions. We accept submissions online or by mail. Winners will be announced in January of 2013.

Don’t forget that your $20 entry fee gets you a one-year subscription to The Missouri Review. Subscriptions are available in print or digital versions. Our downloadable digital subscription includes a full-length audio version of the journal.

You can find more information about the contest through our website:
