The quarterly prose chapbook series The Cupboard has extended the deadline for its second annual contest through Monday, April 30. Cupboard editors are looking for creative prose submissions between 4,000 and 10,000 words for its next issue of short stories, essays, collections of flash fiction, and prose poems. Submissions may be composed of one piece or any combination of multiple pieces.
Maud Casey, the author of The Shape of Things to Come, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; Genealogy, a New York Times Editor’s Choice Book; and Drastic, a collection of short stories, will be this year’s judge.
The Cupboard is published in Lincoln, Nebraska by co-editors Emily Danforth, Dave Madden, and Adam Peterson and features a body of work by a single author. Previous volumes have showcased work by Jesse Ball, Mathias Svalina, Chanelle Benz, Joshua Cohen, and Anne Marie Rooney.
