I want to make sure that you know about the chance to compete for $4,500 in prizes and publication in Â New Letters, theinternational magazine of writing and art. Â The deadline for the 2009 Â New Letters Â Literary Awards is May 18. Â Visitwww.newletters.org/awards.asp Â for complete guidelines. Â The entry fee of $15 includes the cost of a one-year subscription or renewal to Â New Letters. Â Every Literary Awards entry is read anonymously by accomplished editors and writers, and by nationally prominent final judges; Â New Letters Â Editor Robert Stewart considers every entry for publication in Â New Letters—not just the prize winners. Â Â
Winner of the 2007 fiction award, Sara Pritchard: Â “I always enter contests because I like the anonymity of them and because I hate to write a cover letter that tries to sell the story before anyone’s even read it.”Â
I hope you will decide to submit your work. Â The Literary Awards are a great experience for new writers and for more seasoned writers who want to succeed in a new genre. Â If you have any questions, call me or stop by the Â New Lettersoffices at University House, and be sure to check out our latest issue of Â New Letters—it celebrates the work of our 2008 contest winners.
