Breakwater Review’s Annual Fiction Contest is open for submissions. We invite writers of all levels to submit their original, previously unpublished work of fresh short fiction. This year’s guest judge is none other than critically-acclaimed novelist and essayist Porochista Khakpour (author of Brown Album: Essays on Exile and Identity, Sick, and The Last Illusion). The winner of the contest will receive $1,000. The winning entry and all finalists will be published in our forthcoming issue in mid-to-late January, 2021.

The Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation is proud to announce the annual Hurston/Wright Awards for College Writers, which is the only award of its kind that recognizes Black college writers. The award is the foundation’s first program. It was initiated to support emerging Black artists in fiction and poetry enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate school program anywhere in the United States. For the past four years, Amistad, a division of HarperCollins Publishers, has sponsored the award.
