Lit Contest Open to All Wisconsin Writers & Poets

Wisconsin People & Ideas, the Wisconsin Academy’s quarterly magazine of Wisconsin thought and culture, regularly publishes some of the best fiction and poetry from around the state. Now all Wisconsin residents and students have a chance to become a part of Wisconsin’s literary canon by participating in their annual fiction and poetry contests.

Submissions for short stories and poems for the 2014 contests will be accepted until Dec. 15. Prizes available include: $500, publication in Wisconsin People & Ideas, a one-week residency at the lovely Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, and a reading at the Wisconsin Book Festival.

Lead contest judges for this year are author Susanna Daniel and Wisconsin Poet Laureate Max Garland. For more details, visit
