Brink Literary Journal Award for Hybrid Writing

Deadline: February 15; Award: $1,000  and more



Don’t let your creativity go to waste. Enter today!

The contest seeks to award writing that is considered hybrid and cross-genre in nature. Hybrid writing often includes multiple mediums such as visual and written elements that together accomplish a result impossible to achieve alone. Text-based hybrid writing harnesses form and content in singular ways to create dynamic work primed to offer new perspectives, voices, and ideas. Hybrid writing is not experimental or ekphrastic. Instead, it is a style that prioritizes the combination of multiple literary and artistic elements to produce a readable, engaging piece of work.

The contest winner, selected by the contest judge, will be announced in early May.
