Maisonneuve Magazine has posted details on its latest literary contest: "April is Not the Cruelest Month." From the website: "February is all soggy boots and self-bought carnations left over from Valentine's Day. We want to know how you survive the winters. Wail on, but do promise to make us laugh."
You can send one prose OR two poetry entries--there's NO FEE. Entries should run "8-800 words" and "given the format of the magazine, first-person narratives are preferable."
First prize includes $100 and publication in Maisonneuve No. 19. Second and third prizes include publication on Maisonneuve.org and a year's subscription to the magazine. Note that "All other entries may be published online."
Deadline: November 1, 2005.
