About

Formerly The Greensboro Review Literary Awards, the contest was renamed in 2006 to honor poet and novelist Robert Watson who served as one of the first faculty advisers when the student- founded journal was started in 1969. Winners of the Fiction and Poetry Prizes will each receive a cash award and publication in The Greensboro Review.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
