Robert and Adele Schiff Awards in Poetry and Prose

We are accepting entries for the Robert and Adele Schiff Awards in Poetry and Prose until 11:59 p.m. EST on July 15. Each entry costs $20 and comes with a year's subscription to The Cincinnati Review. Multiple submissions are welcome and come with additional yearlong subscriptions, which can be used to extend your original subscription or given as gifts. Please email us at editors[at] if you would like your subscription(s) to go to an address or addresses different from the one in your Submission Manager account.

We are closed for regular, non-contest submissions from March 16 until August 15.

How to use The Cincinnati Review Submission Manager:

arrow left If you already have an account, please log in using the form on the left.

To create an account:
  1. Fill in your contact information below. If you're submitting work for someone else, fill in your contact info and put the name of the person you're submitting for in the "writer name" field.
  2. Fill in the title of the work you're submitting. If you're submitting multiple works, please separate the titles with commas. Your submission must be uploaded as a single document. Please do not include the writer’s name or any identifying information in the manuscript file, as submissions will be judged blind. Manuscript files that do include identifying information will not be read and entry fees will not be refunded, though you'll still get your free subscription.
  3. Choose a genre. Otherwise, the genre will default to fiction.
  4. Use the Browse button to find the file you'd like to submit. Select it and hit Open. The file name will appear in the "file" field. Note: Acceptable document formats are .doc, .pdf, .rtf, and .docx.
  5. Hit Submit.
  6. You'll have the option to review your information and confirm that it's correct. After you've done so, hit Continue to finish.
Note to international entrants: Our payment gateway requires you to enter a US state or territory and zip code as part of your address. We suggest you use 'OH' for the state and '45202' for the zip code. If you already have an account with us, you'll need to change this information on your account page before submitting payment. After your payment has gone through, please change your address back, so that your free subscription will go to the right place.

Important note to everyone: If you log into your Submission Manager account and see that your contest entry is marked unpaid, don't panic and, above all, don't pay again--due to an issue with our payment gateway, we're having to reconcile all entry fees by hand. Since it's the summer, and we're in and out of the office, it might take us a few days to get to yours.

Please do not submit a contest entry without first reviewing our GUIDELINES.

If you have any questions about the contest or problems submitting and/or making payment, send an email to editors[at], and we'll get back to you shortly.
