The 2019 New South Writing Contest was judged by SJ Sindu in prose and Natalie Eilbert in poetry. New South’s contest is open to writers who have not published a book of prose or poetry (chapbooks are fine). The contest awards $1,000 to one winner in poetry and one winner in prose, and a $250 runner’s up prize in each category.
