There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Howling Bird Press, the publishing house of Augsburg College‚Äôs MFA in Creative Writing, offers an annual prize that results in book publication. Our next competition will be for poetry manuscripts, and will be open for submissions from April 15 to June 30, 2017.

The competition is open to all writers in English, whether published or unpublished. The author of the winning manuscript receives a cash award of $1,000, which serves as an advance, with the book subsequently published by Howling Bird Press under a standard book contract.
