WHAT IS THE SCYTHE PRIZE?
The Scythe Prize is an annual publication comprised of pieces of short fiction and creative nonfiction written by budding collegiate voices. Submissions are collected in the spring, editors select a number of pieces, and a prize jury selects the winning short story and essay. Pieces selected by editors appear in the printed anthology which is available in November.
The winning story author receives a $250 prize, as does the winning author of the creative nonfiction category.
