There’s only one month left to enter the DISQUIET Literary Prize with your best fiction, poetry, or nonfiction. Winners will be published in Guernica, Ninthletter.com, and The Collagist. That’s three ways to get published! On top of that, one grand prize winner will be chosen by an outside judge to receive a full scholarship (including travel, tuition and lodging) to attend this year’s program in Lisbon, Portugal.
