What Do US Poet Laureate Emeritus Juan Felipe Herrera and Lemony Snicket Have in Common?
They want to read your writing. The 2021-22 Subnivean Awards are open now, but closing February 21, 2022.
Juan Felipe Herrera, final judge in poetry, wants words that grow wings to singe themselves on the sun. Not a poet, but a fiction writer? Daniel "Lemony Snicket" Handler, final judge in fiction, is ready to read a story that throws caution to the howling wind.
If your poetry is madly ablaze or your fiction is weird, wild and wonderful—or both—consider entering the Subnivean Awards. Winners in each category will receive a blurb about their work by the final judge who selected it, publication in Subnivean, and a $150 prize. Finalists and winners will also be invited to read at a virtual event featuring Herrera and Handler in public conversation.
