The Dos Passos Review
Originating from Longwood University’s prestigious Dos Passos Prize for Fiction, The Dos Passos Review actively seeks the best American writing in the areas of literary fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. We are looking for writing that demonstrates characteristics found in the work of John Dos Passos, such as an intense and original exploration of specifically American themes; an innovative quality; and a range of literary forms, especially in the genres of fiction and creative non-fiction. We are not interested in genre fiction, or prose that is experiment for the sake of experiment. We are also not interested in nonfiction that is scholarly or critical in nature. Send us your best unpublished literary prose or poetry. Guidelines

Liam Rector First Book Prize for Poetry
The Liam Rector First Book Prize for Poetry provides a much-needed venue for poetry publication in an often difficult market. More, it recognizes and honors Liam Rector, a man who dedicated his professional life to the success of American Letters, to creating opportunity for emerging writers and to honoring those who came before us in the procession, from whose literary legacy we all benefit.

0-60: Ten Minute Play Competition
For the theatre student, in the university setting, the ultimate goal is a life of the stage, and the experience needed to create that life. But the cost of a full scale production prevents many theatres from taking a chance on new plays and also puts many students on the sidelines waiting to direct, design, or read new work. With this in mind, 0 to 60: Longwood University Ten-Minute Play Festival was created to provide opportunities for students and playwrights; the ten-minute play format was a way to provide more opportunities for students and produce more playwrights.
