Dappled Things J.F. Powers Prize for Short Fiction

October 23, 2021
Dappled Things: a quarterly of ideas, art, and faith     
J. F. Powers Prize for Short Fiction

“One foot in this world and one in the next”: that’s how J.F. Powers described the Midwestern priests he wrote about in his fiction. Having one foot in another world can be awkward, and Powers’ characters are known not for their graceful mysticism, but for the humiliating and mordantly entertaining stumbles they make while trying to live their faith. We’re looking for carefully crafted short stories with vivid characters who encounter grace in everyday settings—we want to see who, in the age we live in, might have one foot in this world and one in the next.
 
The First Place winner will receive $500. Second Place will receive $250. There is no entrance fee. The winning stories will be published in Dappled Things, along with eight honorable mentions.
 
Please submit your short story (no more than one, no previously published work) to our website by November 30. Limit of 8,000 words.
