A prize of $2,000 and publication in Miracle Monocle is given annually for a work of fiction written in the fabulist experimental style of Italo Calvino. The winner will also receive airfare and lodging to read at the University of Louisville, as public health guidelines will allow. Matt Bell will judge. Using only the online submission system, submit a short story or an excerpt from a story collection, novel, or novella of up to 25 pages with a $25 entry fee by October 15. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
