We believe the Midwest is filled with immense literary talent, and the intent of The Lake Prize is to illuminate the best stories and writers we have to offer.
We are also excited to announce our 2014 judges:
Fiction – Ander Monson
Poetry – Mary Biddinger
Submissions for the 2014 Lake Prize will open on July 1. Entries will be a flat rate of $5—only one entry per person. One winner will be selected for each category, and they will receive $500 and publication in Issue 16 (Winter 2015). Two runners-up will be selected for both categories, and they will each receive $100 and publication in Issue 16 (Winter 2015).
For additional details, plus all guidelines, please visit the official Lake Prize page.
Looking forward to reading your work!
