Two prizes of $500 each are awarded annually to a poet and a fiction writer from a select state. Each winner will also receive a monthlong residency at the Jentel Artist Residency Program in Wyoming and will meet with writers, editors, publishers, and agents virtually or in person in New York City, as public health guidelines allow. The 2022 contest is open to residents of Nebraska. Poets and fiction writers who have published no more than one full-length book in the genre in which they are applying are eligible. By e-mail only, submit 7 to 10 pages of poetry or up to 25 pages of fiction by March 1. There is no entry fee. Visit the website for the required entry form and complete guidelines.
