Summer Contest

The Sandy River Review is happy to announce that we are holding our first annual Undergraduate-Only No-Fee summer contest. There will be two categories, prose and poetry, with a winning prize of $100 for each. Sarah Braunstein will judge for Prose, Wesley McNair for Poetry.

You may submit up to five poems or three prose (fiction or nonfiction) entries. A mix of each is fine, but limited to five pieces total. There is a 3,500 word limit on each prose piece and a ten-page limit on poetry. The contest deadline is July 15th.

You must have been enrolled in college during Spring 2015 (‘15 graduates included) to be eligible for consideration. Please submit your work electronically as a Microsoft Word or Google Doc to (note that this is different from our usual email). Include your year and major in the body of the email to prove that you are an undergraduate.

Winners will be required to submit an additional dated unofficial transcript listing courses taken in the Spring of 2015. We will use this transcript as proof of enrollment and nothing else.
All contest submissions will be considered for publication. Feel free to visit our site at if you have any further questions.
