Applying to More Literary Reviews

The creative nonfiction essay I’ve been submitting to various outlets (internal link) has again been rejected. That makes six rejections so far. Today I submitted it to six more Reviews, three of them open call, two of them contests, one of them an award.

Interested? Deadlines are closing soon. All links are external.

Open Call:

American Literary Review ($3.00 reading fee)

Heartwood Literary Magazine 

Temenos ($4.00 reading fee)


Arcturus: Da Jiao Award for Creative Nonfiction ($5.00 reading fee. 1st prize, $100)


Arts&Letters Creative nonfiction prize ($20.00 to enter. $1,000 prize) All genres. ($25.00 to enter. $2,500 first prize, second place, $500, ten finalists each get $100.)

I know this is a serious amount of money to spend on contests but I haven’t ever entered one so I thought I’d try for the experience. Contest fees go into the prize pool. Excess money supports the literary magazine. A good thing.
