Rise & Shine Mini Contest

Our mini contest seeks works no larger than one page when prose and no longer than three quarters of a page when poetry. It can be micro, mini, flash. We look for identity poetics whether ambiguous or solidly stated. Use metaphor & simile & craft. We are not looking for twitter poetry, so don't let "micro" misinform you on what we want. Mini is where it's at. Make something finely sculpted. We tend to shy away from food themed or feast themed pieces.

1 x $75.00 USD Prize in Poetry
1 x $75.00 USD Prize in Prose
Mini contest submission period ends December 15th, 11:59 p.m. your time.
