Wisconsin People & Ideas, the Wisconsin Academy’s quarterly magazine of Wisconsin thought and culture, regularly publishes some of the best fiction and poetry from around the state. Now it’s your chance to become a part of Wisconsin’s new literary canon by participating in their annual fiction and poetry contest. The contest is open to all Wisconsin residents and students. Submit short stories and poems until December 1, 2015, and you could win up to $500, publication in Wisconsin People & Ideas, a one-week residency at Shake Rag Alley in Mineral Point, and a reading at the Wisconsin Book Festival.
Contest judges this year are author B.J. Hollars (Eau Claire) and Wisconsin Poet Laureate Kimberly Blaeser (Lyons Township).
