All submissions to Tributaries are automatically entered in our annual contest! Every year, a famously talented guest judge chooses one winner and one runner-up in each genre: Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Poetry, and Visual Arts.
Winners receive a cash prize and certificate, not to mention bragging rights, gushy praise, and boundless admiration from staff and peers alike. But no pie. Not yet, anyway.
