Contest deadlines extended until Friday, March 21.
It appears our website was down yesterday, the day before we were set to close our two prose contests. What terrible timing for a glitch! So we'll keep the contests open for another week, to make sure anybody who swung by yesterday doesn't miss the chance to send us something marvelous.
The Waasnode (Anishinaabe for "Northern Lights") Fiction Prize awards $1000 for the best short story. 10,000 word maximum. The Neutrino (physics for very tiny and of neutral genre charge) Short-Short Prize awards $1000 for the best short-short (which includes flash fiction, tiny essays, prose poems, and hybrids). 1000 word maximum. Every entrant receives a copy of the next issue. $15 entry fee (for one long story, or for three short-shorts).
Submit your work here, or send a paper copy (with a check made out to Northern Michigan University) to Passages North, NMU English Department, 1401 Presque Isle Ave., Marquette, MI 49855.
