The Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) is accepting submissions for The Michigan Review of Prisoner Creative Writing, Volume 6. The review will be published in March 2014 and launched with readings in Ann Arbor and Detroit.

We seek writing that is original, unexpected, well-crafted, lively, and creative. We welcome work from both beginning and experienced writers. We expect many submissions, so please send only your best work. Writers whose work is published will receive a free copy of the review, if approved by your facility.

Guidelines
Submissions will be accepted from July 24 to October 20, 2013.

Submit no more than three poems, one short story, or one essay. Poems should be 1-2 pages (typed or handwritten); essays and short stories should be under 2500 words (ten double-spaced typed pages, or twenty handwritten pages).

Entries may be typed or handwritten. If you handwrite, make sure your writing is legible (readable by others).

Format your piece so that it looks on the page the way you want it to look in the book. Consider aspects such as line breaks, spacing, punctuation, and spelling.

Write or type your full name at the top of each page, and number the pages.

All pieces must be accompanied by a submission form. Please talk to your Special Activities Director regarding this form.

Only submit work that you, personally, have written.

Please do not send in the only copy of your work. We cannot return submissions.

Only submissions that follow the above directions will be read.
