Our friends at Pigeon Pages literary journal are hosting an essay contest, judged by Garrard Conley, author of the gorgeous and important memoir Boy Erased, (now a hit movie starring Lucas Hedges, Russell Crowe, and Nicole Kidman!). The contest runs through December 1, offering a cash prize of $250 and publication for its winner and $50 and publication for honorable mentions—and you still have two weeks to submit your best essay!
Previously unpublished creative nonfiction pieces 3,000 words or under are eligible for this contest. Simultaneous submissions are permitted. There is a $10 submission fee. Full details here, and you can submit here. Please direct questions to [email protected].
