Award: $1,000 and publication

No restrictions on genre; entries with a Texas setting or theme are encouraged. Stories should not exceed 2,500 words.

NORTH CAROLINA LITERARY REVIEW CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Deadline: August 31
Now more than ever, North Carolina is finding its way into literature that stretches beyond the state’s borders. From those who’ve moved here from places and cultures around the globe, to those who’ve departed our state bound for distant destinations worldwide, how has “the writingest state” (as Doris Betts called North Carolina) influenced their writing? Is it our rich history, our storied heritage, our diverse culture, our singular environment? Is it our people? Or is it the barbecue that most influences those coming and going? As we pause to step back and examine North Carolina’s global influence, we invite submissions by and about writers whose work bears the imprint of our beloved Old North State. For this section, we would be interested in articles on, interviews with, and creative nonfiction by 1) writers who have a deep history in North Carolina but live and/or write books set elsewhere; 2) “immigrant” writers—writers (of various ethnicities) from outside of North Carolina who have made North Carolina their home; and 3) non-North Carolina writers setting works here.

Deadline: September 22
Award: $1,000 / $500 and publication
Fee: $20
For an upcoming issue, Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays about WAITING. We’re looking for well-crafted true stories of delays, postponements, and pauses that explore and examine our relationship with time. The theme is open to interpretation. Maybe you’re waiting tables or you’re on a waiting list; you could be waiting for the bus or the bell or a friend or a phone call. Maybe you’re waiting for a diagnosis, or for your ship to come in, or for Godot. Maybe you’re expecting. Maybe your story isn’t about you at all; maybe it’s a true story about a town under siege, or a scientific experiment, or a lady-in-waiting … However you approach the subject, we can’t wait to read your work. Submissions must be vivid and dramatic; they should feature a strong and compelling narrative and reach beyond a strictly personal or anecdotal experience for some universal or deeper meaning. (Put another way: something should happen, and it should matter to readers.) Our readers also like to learn new things: tell us something, whether it’s about the history of clocks or how the mind processes time, or maybe about how waiting-period laws vary from state to state. We’re looking for well-written prose, rich with detail and a distinctive voice; all essays must tell true stories and be factual accurate.
