This is a quick note to let you all know about an important development concerning the Speakeasy Prize in Poetry and Prose, administered by The Loft Literary Center, which was announced in the April issue of our Practicing Writer newsletter.
On Friday, April 7, The Loft announced that Speakeasy will publish its final print issue in June. See the press release here.
The information on the contest page has also been amended to include the following:
Because Speakeasy will not publish a print issue after this summer, it is our intention to find another nationally circulated magazine (to be announced soon) that will publish the Speakeasy Prize winners. We are hard at work on the details, and we will post them as soon as they are finalized. If you have already submitted your manuscript, we will contact you at the e-mail or mailing address on your cover sheet with the details and your subsequent options for participation. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any additional questions, please e-mail speakeasy (at) loft.org.

Wanted to let you all know about this right away.
