We here at Split Lip are thrilled to announce not one, but TWO contests launching today. In addition to another year of our highly successful Turnbuckle Chapbook Contest, we are launching the first ever Livershot Memoir Contest.
This is an exciting year for our chapbook contest because we’ve lowered the entry fee (from $12 to $10) and also are lucky to have a brilliant guest judge signed on to make our final selections.
Sara Lippmann is the author of the story collection, DOLL PALACE. She was the recipient of an artist’s fellowship in fiction from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and her stories have appeared in Slice Magazine, Tupelo Quarterly, Joyland, Wigleaf and elsewhere. For more, visit saralippmann.com
We are so thrilled to get the chance to work with her, and excited to publish her selection! So get those chapbooks in, friends! You have until January 16th, 2016.
The Livershot Memoir Contest is the idea of our Memoir Editor, Matthew Dexter. Like most writers and editors, he abhors fees (we do too, even though they’re still often necessary to do what we do), so he wanted a contest that was free, but that still rewarded a writer with more than just an online announcement or publication. So the contest was born: $200 prize + publication for the best piece of memoir 750 words or less. More details below. THERE IS ONLY A ONE MONTH SUBMISSIONS WINDOW–SO GET THOSE ENTRIES IN!
We can’t wait to read your work! Thank you so much for supporting small presses and letting us support you.
