St. Somewhere Journal, a premier Caribbean literary ezine, has launched a new annual contest in June 2010, “to encourage and reward talented writers.”
There will be three annual prizes to contributors. The Editor advises, “This is not a contest in the traditional manner practiced by many literary journals and magazines. There are no special entry guidelines or fees. Winners will be chosen from among the journal’s regularly selected contributors. ”
Award winners will be decided in January of each year and all contributors from the preceeding year will be eligible for selection. The prizes are as follows:
Jack Mandora Prize for Fiction – $75.00 USD
Awarded to a single recipient in recognition of their prose fiction work. May be awarded on the merit of one or more short stories featured in St. Somewhere.
St. Somewhere Prize for Poetry – $50.00 USD
