Call for Submissions--Short Prose

This just in from Gulf Coast:

Gulf Coast Announces 3rd Annual Barthelme Prize

Gulf Coast is happy to announce that the 2010 Barthelme Prize for short prose is now open for submissions!

No matter what you call it--flash fiction, prose poems, micro-essays--send us your work of 500 words or less. The winner will receive $1,000 and will be published in the issue of Gulf Coast due out in Spring 2011, along with the two runners-up.

Last year we were happy to publish three excellent pieces of short prose by Matthew Yeager (2009's winner), Tracy Guzeman, and Joseph Holt. We were especially excited to find that these were the first (but surely not last) publications for Tracy and Joseph!

Entries are due August 31st, 2010 and each entrant will receive a year's subscription to Gulf Coast.

For more information, see their website here.
