Announced: Semi-finalists and Finalists of the 2013 William Van Wert

Due to the large number of submissions this year, it has taken a little longer to make our decisions. So many strong manuscripts and writers offer a wealth of talent, but also provide a real challenge! Congratulations to the semi-finalists and finalists named below. Please check back shortly, since we are doing one last reading of the finalists, and will be announcing our winner shortly.
Thanks to everyone who shared their work with us; we honor and cherish each and every one of you, and wish you the best of success in your writing.

The William Van Wert Fiction Award offers $1000 to the winning manuscript.

The next round of our William Van Wert competition deadlines June 30, 2014. Information and submission requirements are found here on our guidelines page.
