Submissions for the 2018 Blue Lights Book Prize in Poetry are open until Oct. 31.
This year, Indiana Review and Indiana University Press expanded the Blue Light Books partnership to include the Don Belton Fiction Reading Period. Thanks to everyone who sent novels, novellas, and short story collections! It really was an honor to read your work. We’re excited now to announce the inaugural selection, set for publication in Fall 2019:
Indiana Review is accepting submissions to the 1/2 K Prize until August 15, 2018. Final judges Bryan Borland and Seth Pennington will select a winner to receive $1000 and publication. Essence London, who shares Arkansas with them as home, asks them to talk a bit about writers they love and collaboration and refreshing images. Though they are in conversation here primarily as editors, know too that they are writers and that you can find their latest work on their respective websites: bryanborland.com and sethpennington.com.
Indiana Review’s 2018 1/2 K Prize opens July 1st along with our Twitter contest, “GIF Us What You Got!” We’re looking for stories and poems, 280 characters or less, that can be supported by a related internet GIF to illustrate your work. Anything goes, so get GIF’n! Make sure to hashtag your tweet with #IRGIF. The contest is open until Tuesday, July 31st.
One GIF-savvy winner will receive a free submission to our 1/2 K Prize as well as a copy of Indiana Review’s 40.1 issue and Jennifer Givhan’s poetry collection Girl with Desk Mask.
Don’t forget to submit your 1/2 K piece by August 15th! Good Luck!
