Gabriele Rico Challenge for Nonfiction
Submissions Open June 1 - November 1
The Gabriele Rico Challenge for Nonfiction recognizes outstanding works of nonfiction. We are looking for creative nonfiction, e.g. personal essays or narratives, not scholarly papers or book reviews. All works should be stand-alone essays, not chapters of a longer work.
Our editors read all nonfiction submissions of up to 5,000 words. Reed 153 is an open-themed issue. Multiple submissions are accepted.
Please be sure to:
include your name, address, phone number, and email address on the first page
format pieces in double-spaced 12-point font
include word count
provide a brief bio
make sure your Submittable profile is up-to-date
Prize submissions require a reading fee of $20, which includes a free copy of the latest edition of Reed. Contest submissions not selected for final judging may still be considered for publication in the magazine.
