The Seattle Review holds an annual poetry and fiction contest with $500 prize in each category.
Quoted in Writer’s Market 2009: “Beginners do well in our magazine if they send clean, well-written manuscripts. We’ve published a lot of ‘first stories’ from all over the country and take pleasure in discovery.”
