Jim | 6 comments The Atlantic Monthly invites submissions of poetry, fiction, and personal or
journalistic essays for its 2007 Student Writing Contest.

Poetry, fiction, and personal or journalistic essays.

First $1,000 | Second: $500 | Third: $250
and one-year subscriptions to The Atlantic Monthly for seven runners-up in
each category.

ENTRANTS must be full-time undergraduate or graduate students currently
enrolled in an accredited degree-granting U.S. institution. Submissions should be
original, unpublished work (they may have appeared in student periodicals)
demonstrating superior quality of expression and craftsmanship.

SUBMISSIONS should not exceed three poems or 7,500 words of prose. No entrant
may send more than one submission per category, and entries must be
postmarked by December 1, 2007.

MANUSCRIPTS should be typewritten (one side only, please) double-spaced, and
accompanied by a cover sheet with the following information: title, category,
word count, author's name, address, phone number, e-mail address (if
available), and academic institution. Of this information, only the title should appear
on the manuscript itself.

PLEASE PROVIDE a stamped, self-addressed postcard for acknowledgement of
receipt. We cannot provide information on the status of a manuscript until winners
are announced, in the May 2008 issue. Winners will receive notification in

Ruth Oh to be a student again.

I could enter this contest.

I could get up after kneeling on the floor.

Jim | 6 comments I know, Ruth! I sent this around to several teachers this morning, hoping some of them might have students who'd be interested. But in my heart of hearts, I was so envious.
