To Submit

  • Remember to send up to three pieces. Any genre for this contest! Each piece should be 500 words or less and in a single word document.

  • Entrant’s name must not appear on the submission.

  • A cover letter is not required but can be included in the comments box if you like.

  • Each $20 fee gets you a year-long subscription of the journal. International addressees, please add $12 for postage ($7 for addresses in Canada). If the fee provides a hardship, keep an eye out for discounted rates near the end of July.

  • Be sure to select the genre “2018 1/2 K Prize” on the submission form. Submissions with incorrectly designated genres will not be read.

  • A "Submit Entry" button will appear below when submissions open. Click it to get started. You will be redirected to the Submissions Manager to upload your submission after making the PayPal payment. If you are not automatically redirected, please contact inreview@indiana.edu and we will ensure you are able to complete your submission.

Keep in Mind:

  • IR doesn't accept mailed or emailed submissions.

  • All entries are considered anonymously.

  • Previously published works and works forthcoming elsewhere cannot be considered.

  • Simultaneous submissions are okay, but the entry fee is non-refundable if the submitted work is accepted elsewhere or withdrawn for another reason.

  • Multiple entries are okay, as long as a separate reading fee is included with each entry.

  • Finally, IR cannot consider work from anyone currently or recently affiliated with Indiana University or the prize judges. This includes people who have studied or taught at IU in the past four years.

Thank you. We look forward to reading your work!
