Call to Writers: Missouri Review Annual Editors’ Prize is Open

The Missouri Review has opened their 30th annual Jeffrey E. Smith Editors’ Prize, which awards $5,000 each to winners in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. This is open for submissions until October 1st, and welcomes writers of all levels to submit.

In addition to $5,000, winners in each genre will have their winning piece published in the spring issue, and will be honored with a reading in spring of 2021. All submissions are considered for publication and runners-up and finalists for the prize are often published in the Missouri Review or, in the case of poetry, as part of their Poem of the Week online feature.

They are focused on the quality of the writing first and foremost— they are searching for and would like to support strong work. Past winners have ranged from emerging writers to ones with established writing careers.

Submissions are accepted online or by mail — postmark deadline is October 1 — and the winners will be announced in January of 2021.

There are two options offered for entry fees. $25 is the standard entry fee, which includes a 1-year digital subscription to TMR and Strange Encounters: Stories from the Missouri Review. $30 is the All Access option, which includes the same goodies as the standard option, plus full access to the ten-year archive, complete with print and audio versions of TMR.
