First Prize: $1,000. You may submit only one piece of creative nonfiction, no longer than 30 pages in a Word document. Please do not upload a pdf (they cannot be read by our system). All contact information should be entered in your cover letter. No names or addresses should appear on manuscripts, please. Your piece will be assigned a log number so it can be "read blind." Simultaneous submission to other journals or competitions is allowed with notice. Payment will be required as part of the sign up procedure which will provide you with a copy of the Williams Prize issue.
Our judge is Luis Urrea.
Regular nonfiction submissions will be closed when our Terry Tempest Williams Prize for Creative Nonfiction is open. The CNF prize will remain open until April 1st, at that time we will reopen regular CNF submissions.
