Robert and Adele Schiff Prose and Poetry Prizes


The Cincinnati Review invites submissions for the second annual Robert and Adele Schiff Prose and Poetry Prizes. One winning poem and prose piece (fiction or creative nonfiction) will be chosen for publication, and winning authors will receive $300 each. All entries will be considered for publication in The Cincinnati Review.

Writers may submit up to 8 pages of poetry or 40 pages of prose, per entry. Previously published manuscripts, including works that have appeared online (in any form), will not be considered. There are no restrictions as to form, style, or content; all entries will be considered for publication.

Entry fee is your choice of either: $15 contest only or $25, which includes a one-year subscription to The Cincinnati Review. All entries will receive equal consideration. Checks should be made payable to University of Cincinnati.

Submissions will be accepted by mail in June and July (postmarked). Entries must include a cover letter with the writer’s name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail, and the title(s) of the work(s) submitted. Please do not include the writer’s contact info on the manuscript, as submissions will be judged blindly.
