Announcing Our BIG 2015-2016 Indiana Review News!

We’re busy in the Indiana Review offices this summer: Our 2015 1/2K Prize is currently open for your work under 500 words in any genre, and our new Summer 2015 issue was published only weeks ago. We’re also very happy to announce our three exciting new ventures and partnerships!

Indiana Review is thrilled to partner with the excellent Indiana University Press to start our Blue Light Books series, an annual Prize given on alternating years for a short story collection and a poetry collection. From December 1, 2015 to February 15, 2016 we will be accepting submissions of short story collections. The winner will receive $2,000, publication with IU Press, and be flown out to beautiful Bloomington, IN to read at our 2017 Blue Light Reading. This year the prize will be judged by Michael Martone.

In collaboration with Indiana University’s undergraduate W280 Literary Editing & Publishing Course, Indiana Review will present a special online issue of work written exclusively by undergraduate students from colleges nationwide. Indiana Review online: an Undergraduate Project will be edited by undergraduate students enrolled in the course (which will be taught by excellent IR Fiction Editor emeritus Alexandria Barkmeier) and published on IR‘s site in January 2016. IR online: an Undergraduate Project’s submission period (open to undergraduate writers ONLY) is September 15, 2015 to October 31, 2015.

This fall, Indiana Review will accept submissions for a Ghost-themed issue. Submissions will open on September 1 and close on October 31, 2015. In considering the Ghost theme, we wonder: How can we excavate disappearance and evaporation, loss in all its forms? How can what is left materialize before us or vanish noiselessly into the dark? This issue will be full of cool fog and soft light—the living glow inside the body.

Thank you for your continued interest in Indiana Review. We’re looking forward to these great new projects and, as always, to reading your great new work.

    Just wanted to verify, for the 1/2k Prize, one entry is one story under 500 words for a $20 fee which includes a copy of the issue that includes the prize winners?
