The 2013 contests are open to poems and short stories written by Wisconsin residents and students. Submissions are currently being accepted until Dec. 15.

Prizes include winning up to $500, publication in Wisconsin People & Ideas and a one-week writer’s residency at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point.
