Calling All Creators!

We are excited to invite you to join in on The River’s new contest! Based off the topics of our blogs, we challenge you to create a piece that involves themes of both horror and coffee! We’re accepting prose (limited to 1,000 words), poetry, short dramatic works, artworks, and podcasts (limited to 10 minutes).

Submit by March 30, 2019 for the chance to win publication and as a bonus for the first place winner, a signed copy of The Belfast Notebooks, a 2017 book of poetry by Jeffrey Thomson, a Creative Writing professor at the University of Maine at Farmington!

Be sure to send your submissions to or through our submission page on The River site and include in the email or the subject line that your work is for the contest! If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to email us. We’re happy to help!

Happy writing!

Audrey Harper & Ciera Miller
