JSPF Nonfiction Contest!

Have you seen the submission requirements for our Nonfiction contest? The theme this year is “Bridges and Borders.” Do you have a story about how you bridged  a physical, emotional, cultural, or social border? We want to read it! The prizes are good too–cash and publication. Write on.


The 2011 Nonfiction Award from Jane’s Stories Press Foundation will be awarded to the best original and previously unpublished nonfiction work of any form written by a woman and submitted by September 15, 2011.  The contest results will be announced in October, 2011.  A First Prize of $200, a second prize of $50, and third prize of $25 will be awarded, and the winning entry will be published in our forthcoming anthology and promoted on the Jane’s Stories Press Foundation web site.

2.  Entries should speak to the Foundation’s special interests in work by and about women as well as the 2011 theme, “Bridges and Borders.” We are looking for work that addresses women in conflict and conflict resolution, and that addresses cultural, historical, political, and social boundaries.
