The Jackpine Writers’ Bloc of Northern Minnesota has just opened Talking Stick Volume 22 for submissions. They are giving a $300 prize for first place and a $100 prize for second place in the categories of Poetry, Fiction and Creative Nonfiction. It must be unpublished work. Fiction submissions must be less than 1500 words and creative nonfiction must be under 1,000 words. I always tell my students to double space submissions, but their call-out requires single spacing. Follow the directions and be bold with your submissions!! If your piece is chosen, your work will be showcased among some great Minnesota writers. You might even win the big prize.

Best of luck to everyone! Remember to submit by March 1, 2013. Please let me know if your work is selected.
