PostSubject: Ascent Writing Contest - Deadline February 28, 2009   Mon Feb 02, 2009 3:47 pm

Contest closes February 28th, 2009


The submissions will be judged in March and the anthology will be produced in April with a publishing date hopefully no later than the end of May, 2009.

The publication will be a perfect-bound 120-page book with a glossy art designed cover. Since Ascent is a non-profit publication, offering the print edition as a contest will provide the funding for the book. This contest will run for five months and the print edition will appear in the spring of 2009. At the same time Ascent will continue to publish the electronic editions each quarter separate from any print editions. There is no particular theme for this issue; send your best work.

First Prize for Poetry - $100 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

First Prize for Flash Fiction - $100 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

Second Prize for Poetry - $50 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

Second Prize for Flash Fiction - $50 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

Third Prize for Poetry - $25 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

Third Prize for Poetry - $25 (CND) & 1 copy of the anthology

Plus 6 - $10 (CND) honourable mention awards with 1 copy of the anthology

Plus all additional contributors in the collection will receive one copy of the anthology.

The goal is for the contest to generate the costs for publishing the anthology. If the entry fees and sales of the anthology exceed the costs, then the additional money will be used to fund future print editions of Ascent with prize money being more widely distributed among all the authors who appear in the anthology.

Rules & Guidelines:

The seventh print edition will contain poetry and flash fiction.

Poems and flash fiction can be published elsewhere as long as the author holds the copyright or unpublished and not sent elsewhere. Submit your poem(s)/flash fiction with a brief bio by e-mail to

In the subject heading say Spring 2009 Edition.

By mail with your contest fee include a cover page with the poem(s)/flash fiction title(s) and the first line beside each title, your name, address, phone number and e-mail. IN ADDITION ALSO INCLUDE EACH POEM/FALSH FICTION ON A SEPARATE PAGE WITHOUT YOUR NAME. We will be using the printed copies of your poems for judging and the electronic copies sent by email for the designing of the book pages should you be included in the anthology.

Maximum length of each poem is 60 lines and spaces between the stanzas count as lines. The maximum length for flash fiction is 800 words.

Contest fee: $5 for one poem or 3 poems for $10. $10 for each piece of flash fiction. You can send as many poems/flash fiction pieces as you wish.

Send your entry information, and POEMS/FLASH FICTION with payment to:

either David Fraser, or Ascent Aspirations Publishing
