THE SUBNIVEAN AWARDS
The 2021-22 Subnivean Awards in fiction and poetry are now closed. Seven finalists' work have been forwarded on to a final judge. Peruse their work in Issue 5, and catch them reading their work at our April 13 virtual soiree, following a conversation between Daniel Handler (AKA Lemony Snicket) and U.S. Poet Laureate Emeritus Juan Felipe Herrera. Winners will be announced in our summer issue and receive a blurb about their writing by the final judge who selected it, as well as $150 each.
But what about general submissions?
Yes, we read those year-round.
The stories and poems that we are looking for need not fit into a particular mold; rather, we're seeking work that breaks the mold, grinds it into a fine powder, pours it in a pot of water and brings it to a boil, schleps it up a steep mountainside, drizzles it across the snow and lets it cool, there, into the desired shape.
The Subnivean Awards offer writers the chance to have their work read and blurbed by one of our luminary final judges, meet them at a virtual soiree and a bit of earn cold hard cash.
