The Missouri Review welcomes submissions to our 12th Annual Miller Audio Prize here. We are always open for regular submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry at our submission manager.
$1000 for first prize in each of four categories: prose, poetry, audio documentary, and humor
Entry Fee: $10, $16, $24, or $30. You choose what you pay. Your entry fee includes a one-year digital subscription to the Missouri Review, which normally costs $24.
Length: All entries must be 15 minutes or shorter.
Eligibility: Previous first-place winners in a category are not eligible to win again. Multiple entries must be accompanied by a separate fee for each. Previously published or aired pieces are acceptable as long as you, the entrant, hold the rights.
