Spring is flying by so fast, be sure to make a note of the submission deadline dates if you plan on sending your work out for these two fantastic opportunities:


Stephen F. Austin State University Press Fiction & Poetry Prizes
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2010
One winner and up to three finalists in each category will be published in 2011.

Stephen F. Austin State University Press invites submissions of manuscripts each year for its fiction and poetry series. We are committed to publishing diverse kinds of fiction and poetry by a diversity of writers. The only criterion is excellence.

Submission Requirements:
1. The series is open to all book-length manuscripts by a single author of at least 150 pages of fiction or 60 pages of poetry. Stories or poems previously published in periodicals or anthologies are eligible for inclusion.
2. The editor requests that faculty, staff, and current or former students refrain from submitting to the series.
3. Submissions will be accepted from January 1 through March 31, 2010. Please do not send revisions once you have sent a manuscript. Up to four manuscripts will be chosen in each category by July 31, 2010, one of which (in each category) will win the $1000 prize.
