Writers are welcome to submit single submissions or series of pieces in any of the aforementioned genres. No entry fee is required. Winners will receive mouth-watering cash prizes and all-expense paid trips to a symposium.

The theme of the 2019 Jericho fellowship prizes is Epiphany.

According to the press release,

An epiphany is that moment when the unseen becomes manifest, the unspoken is articulated, and confusion yields to utter clarity. It is perhaps the search for that epiphany that matters most. It entails the work of the imagination, the suspension of disbelief, the silencing of doubt. And the willingness to not let the search for that perfect moment ~ that epiphany ~ obscure and negate what comes before it.
