Mid-American Review Fineline Competition Deadline Extended

Posted by bgsuenglish on June 28, 2010

The deadline for Mid-American Review‘s 2010 Fineline Competition for Prose Poems, Short Shorts, and Everything In Between has been extended to a postmark deadline of July 1.

The contest is for previously unpublished prose poems, short shorts, or miscellany, 500 words or under, and this year’s contest is being judged by Alan Michael Parker, author of several books of poetry, most recently Elephants & Butterflies.. Please note that poetry with line breaks will automatically be disqualified.

The winner of this competition will receive publication in Volume XXXI, Number 1 of MAR, and receive a $1000 cash prize. Ten finalists will also receive notation and possible publication.

A $10 fee (check or m.o., made out to Mid-American Review) is required for all entries. Each $10 fee covers up to 3 individual pieces, so send us 3 at a time!

All entries can be sent to:

2010 Fineline Competition
Dept of English
Bowling Green, OH 43403

Any questions can be directed to Michael Czyzniejewski at
