As editors of a small press, we look for collections of the best new short fiction, essays, and poetry from emerging and established writers. We seek work that responds to our common experience and reflects our differences.
Cutleaf, an online journal of fiction, literary nonfiction, and poetry, is published every month.
EastOver Press will publish a yearly anthology, The Cutleaf Reader, with the best work published in the journal each year.
EastOver Prize for Fiction
The EastOver Prize is awarded annually to outstanding, unpublished short story collection(s) by established and emerging writers.
One winner and multiple finalists may be declared at the conclusion of the contest. The winner of this contest will be awarded $2500 and be published by EastOver Press.
All prizes will be awarded upon successful completion of a contract for publication. Finalists in the contest may also be considered for publication by the Press. See the EastOver Prizes page for more information.
EastOver Prize for Nonfiction
The EastOver Prize for Essays (and other Nonfiction) is open to a wide variety of book length non-fiction manuscripts by established and emerging writers.
We are especially interested in collections of literary essays, but will consider memoirs, mixed genre works, works combining essays and original visual art, speculative non-fiction, and other hybrid works.
The winner(s) of this contest will be offered publication with EastOver Press. Publication will include $2500 at the time of contract signing as well as other customary arrangements regarding book copies, royalties and so forth to be agreed at the time of contract signing. Finalists may also be considered for publication by the Press. See the EastOver Prizes page for more information.
