GATES OPEN! SUBMIT!
Iron Horse Literary Review is now accepting submissions for our annual Single-Author Competition. This year, we are seeking to publish a prose chapbook composed of either stories or essays. Roxane Gay will judge.
To submit, send a manuscript of 50-65 pages composed of either stories or essays in which each new piece begins on a new page. The author’s name and contact information must appear on a title cover sheet, but it must NOT appear anywhere else on the manuscript unless it's nonfiction and the author is referring to him or herself inside the manuscript. While portions of the chapbook may have been published elsewhere, the collection as a whole must be previously unpublished.
The finished product will emphasize your title, not the name of Iron Horse, and the winner will receive $1,000 and 15 copies. Your $15 entry fee comes with a one-year subscription to the journal.
Go here for more info, and send us your best by Feb. 28th!
