Seven Hills and Penumbra Writing Contests Accepting Submissions

The Seven Hills Literary and Penumbra Poetry and Haiku contests are now accepting online manuscript submissions. Aug. 30 is the upload deadline.

The contests, sponsored by the Tallahassee Writers Association, are in their 19th and 27th years, respectively, and are open to all.

Short stories, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, and children’s picture books (text only) are the categories for prose competition.

Winners in prose and poetry receive $100 for first place; $75, second; and $50, third. Haiku winners receive $50, $35, and $20. Winning entries will be published in the 2014 Seven Hills Review.
