Thank You!

The advertised deadline for the Donald L. Jordan Prize for Literary Excellence” has passed, so our site is now closed to entries.  We thank all those who have submitted and will announce finalists in late fall.  As with all prizes, we regret that we can not provide feedback or critiques about submissions.  Please let us know if you find a contract for your manuscript elsewhere, since we are diligent readers.
