MAR’s My Little Pony Writing Contest

Posted on 22 February 2014

So a few orders of business! First, I will be at AWP in Seattle this year, so if you’re going, speak up and let’s try to meet up. And whether you’ll be in attendance or not, you should really consider the special contest Mid-American Review is running…especially if you were a fan of My Little Pony in the 80s (or still are today). I present to you…

Mid-American Review‘s Magical My Little Pony Writing Contest

Writing is magic. At least it is at AWP 2014, when Mid-American Review will host a special contest for the best My Little Pony poem or piece of flash fiction!

The magical details: Write a poem or flash fiction piece (under 500 words) about the glories of My Little Pony. Take that theme as you wish and have fun with it. Next, stop by Booth V3 at the AWP 2014 bookfair by Friday, Feb. 28 by 3 p.m. to submit your My Little Pony literary masterpiece. Legible handwritten entries will be accepted; electronic entries can be sent to with “My Little Pony Writing Contest” as the subject line. Be sure to include your name, phone number, and email address somewhere on your entry.

The glittery prize: Winners will be selected at the MAR booth in the AWP bookfair at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28 and will receive a free, one-year subscription to Mid-American Review. All entries may be considered for publication on MAR’s new blog.

Let the magic begin.

♥ But wait, there’s more! Mid-American Review is also hosting a joint event and reading with Cincinnati Review and Ninth Letter at Unicorn Seattle (in the Narwhal room, that is) on Thursday, Feb. 26 from 6:30-8:30pm. Come join me and have a drink called the Hellicorn or Rainbow Brite or Unicorn in Pear Adise or, of course, a My Little Pony.

    I’ll be there, too, Laura so I hope we can connect !! I’d love to hear all about how grad school is going for you, and what you’re working on.

    I’m going, finally! Let’s find each other and say hello!

    • Yes, definitely! If you’re free Thursday evening, do consider coming to the Unicorn (I’m just excited to see the place…) for the joint MAR/Cincinnati Review/Ninth Letter reading 6:30-8:30pm. We can have unicorn-themed cocktails! Otherwise, hopefully we can meet up.
