SUBMISSIONS

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.
