Contest Extension!

We are extending our contest deadline to April 6, 2019, to allow a week for more of your wonderful work! Remember to include both themes of coffee AND horror in prose (limited to 1,000 words), poetry, short dramatic works, artworks, and podcasts (limited to 10 minutes).

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! The first place winner wins publication on The River‘s site and 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! Second and third also win publication!

If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to email us. We’re happy to help!
