Can you believe it's been 30 days already? This month we've been quite busy finalizing several of our latest literary publications, the least of which is the next edition of the Tampa Review,
as well as beginning the process to transplant the Tampa Book Arts Studio
across campus to a bigger and better home. What an undertaking that has been, and you can check out more about the move down here
We are also happy to report an outstanding turnout of submissions to our annual Danahy Fiction Prize
, which closed its submissions earlier this month. We'd like to thank everyone who entered and to let you know we are already quite impressed by the overall pool of talent that this year's contest has brought.
For all poets, this next announcement is for you. We are currently accepting submissions to The Tampa Review Poetry Prize
. The deadline for entry is December 31, 2011, and though waiting till the last minute would be an inspired way to bring in the new year, we look forward to reading your submissions as we get them. By the way, in case you don't know, the prize for this is $2,000 and having your manuscript published by us - you can also now submit online as well as by mail. Check out our guidelines page
to get a full breakdown of the rules and how to submit.
For our Florida natives, UT Press is going to be at the Miami Book Fair
from November 18th- 20th. If you're around, stop by our table (shared with the University of Tampa Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing program
) and check out our discounted issues of Tampa Review
and other UT Press publications. We'll also have candy, so there's that . . .
And with that dear writers, readers, and champions of the arts we thank you for your amazing support and wish you continued good news - and maybe just a little bit of luck.
