Fiction Division:
Submit an original unpublished short story of 800-1,000 words in
the voice of a character from another country or culture.

Poetry Division:
Submit one to three poems totaling no more than 100 lines in the
voice of a character from another country or culture.

Nonfiction Division:
Write an 800-1,000 word essay about a social, political,
environmental, or familial challenge faced by individuals within
a cultural group, or a personal experience with another culture.

First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded in fiction,
nonfiction, and poetry categories.

First place winners will receive $50.
Second place winners will receive $25.
Third place winners will receive $10.

All winners will be published in DoveTales Literary journal, a
