Writing ContestS/PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITIEs

  • USD's Cropper Creative Writing Contest in Poetry & Prose. Look for info soon on the Fall 2014 contest!
  • Dappled Things' J.F. Powers Prize for Short Fiction. We’re looking for carefully crafted short stories with vivid characters who encounter grace in everyday settings—we want to see who, in the age we live in, might have one foot in this world and one in the next. The judges will be award-winning authors Arthur Powers and Matthew Lickona. The winner will receive $500, with an additional $250 going to the runner-up. There is no reading fee. The winning stories will be announced in February, 2015 and published in Dappled Things, along with eight honorable mentions.  Please submit your short story (no more than one, no previously published work) to our website by November 28, 2014.*
  • Dappled Things is introducing this year the Jacques Maritain Prize for Nonfiction. Maritain was an influential 20th century Thomist philosopher and Catholic convert whose work covered a wide range of topics, including metaphysics and epistemology, ethics and politics, and—significantly for us—literature and art. His book Art and Scholasticism has been a major influence in Dappled Things’ own approach to aesthetics. Prize Amounts: 1st place: $500; 2nd place: $300; & 3rd place: $200. Submission deadline is by June 2015.*
