Announcing the Bellevue Literary Press

I just revisited the Bellevue Literary Review website and discovered something quite interesting: The Bellevue Literary Press.

According to the website, the Press, a collaboration of the journal and New York University School of Medicine is “a new trade book publishing house” that “intends to publish books of the greatest artistic and intellectual merit from the larger community, both medical and non-medical, while reflecting NYU’s excellence in scholarship, humanistic medicine, and science.” It “will feature original authoritative literary works–both fiction and nonfiction–in the sciences, social sciences and arts.”

Latest Maisonneuve Magazine Competition

Maisonneuve Magazine has posted details on its latest literary contest: “April is Not the Cruelest Month.” From the website: “February is all soggy boots and self-bought carnations left over from Valentine’s Day. We want to know how you survive the winters. Wail on, but do promise to make us laugh.”

You can send one prose OR two poetry entries–there’s NO FEE. Entries should run “8-800 words” and “given the format of the magazine, first-person narratives are preferable.”

First prize includes $100 and publication in Maisonneuve No. 19. Second and third prizes include publication on Maisonneuve.org and a year’s subscription to the magazine. Note that “All other entries may be published online.”

Deadline: November 1, 2005.
