Announcing the Missouri Review’s 9th Annual Miller Audio Prize, deadline March 15

The Missouri Review wants your submissions for their annual audio competition. CASH prizes! Details below. Deadline March 15. -Mia

We at The Missouri Review, a multi-media literary journal, are excited to announce that our 2016 Miller Audio Competition is underway, and we would love to receive work from the members of your organization. We will accept entries both via mail and online. Prizes will be awarded for high-quality recordings of poets and writers reading their work for Poetry, Prose, Audio Documentary, and Humor categories.

More than slick production or fancy bells and whistles, we are looking for good, exciting, and compelling writing for all four of our categories.

The winner of each of the four categories receives $1,000. Winning entries and runners-up will be featured on our podcast. All entrants receive a one-year, digital subscription to The Missouri Review.

Our guest contest judge this year is Andrea Silenzi, who is the Senior Producer of The Gist with Mike Pesca, a daily news show from Slate. She also hosts the podcast Why Oh Why, a show about relationships. Her work has aired on Serendipity, The Organist from the Believer Magazine, BBC4, StoryCorps, PRI's Studio 360, WNYC News, Re:Sound, APM's Performance Today, Saltcast, and on Too Much Information with Benjamen Walker. She holds the world record for most guests booked for an hour-long radio show, and that's 67.

We are also excited to once again offer pay-by-donation entry fees! Now you decide what you will pay to enter the competition. (Previously, entry to the Miller Audio Contest cost $20). All contributions go directly towards supporting the continued production of The Missouri Review, its awards, and related programs.

Deadline: March 15th, 2016
