Writers, here’s another great opportunity to have your work seen by excellent editors and earn placement in a magazine with an international readership. The Ploughshares Emerging Writers Contest opens February 1, 2013. They’re accepting stories under 6,000 words in the categories of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry (poetry submissions are much shorter). You must not have a published book forthcoming before April 15, 2014 to be eligible.
For more details, check out their submissions page.
