Our multi-genre contest will publish a winner in each genre: fiction in Guernica, non-fiction in Ninthletter.com, and poetry in The Collagist. One grand prize winner will be chosen by an outside judge to receive a full scholarship (travel, tuition and lodging) to attend the amazing DISQUIET International Literary Program in Lisbon, Portugal, to take place June 29-July 11, 2014.

The DISQUIET Prize is no longer limited to work with an international bent. So send us your best, whatever that is!
