Three prizes of publication in Quarterly West are given annually for a group of poems, a short story or novel excerpt, and an essay or memoir excerpt. The winners also choose to receive either $1,000 or tuition to attend the Writers at Work Conference in Alta, Utah, in June. Writers who have not published a book in the genre in which they are applying are eligible. Using the online submission system, submit up to six poems totaling no more than 10 pages or up to 5,000 words of prose with a $20 entry fee by January 31. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
