It’s the first day of June: Cicadas hum loudly in the trees here in Ohio, sunset is later and later (nearly 9 p.m. today), and the trees are in full green. In this spirit of late springtime, we are pleased to announce that we are open for submissions to the Robert and Adele Schiff Awards in Poetry and Prose! One winner from each category will receive $1,000 and publication in our summer 2018 issue, and all entries will be considered for publication. Each entrant also receives a one-year subscription to the Cincinnati Review.
Read more about the contest guidelines here, and submit here. You have until July 15 to send in your best poetry and prose—so enjoy your first few dips in the pool or ocean, the conversations over a firepit in the long twilights, and sweet early summer breezes, but don’t let the time get away from you.
