Memoir (and) is published twice each year—spring & summer and fall & winter. All entries for each issue are automatically considered for Memoir (and)’s contest. Four prizes are awarded each reading period, with prizes from $100 to $500. Memoir (and) is dedicated to memoir in a broad sense, to good writing and to voices often overlooked by mainstream media.
Memoir (and) practices blind reading, so the true determining factor of a piece’s merit is its writing quality. It is a print publication that also publishes excerpts online. The editors are interested in memoir and in writing about memoir.
