It’s energy. It’s intensity. It’s passion. It consumes you. It bakes. It steams. It’s a fever, or a just blush. It’s a night in a cheap motel, a barefoot walk on hot sand, an hour in the interrogation room. It’s nuclear fusion or the Senate floor. It’s jalapeno and habanero peppers. It’s the cops.
It’s the contest theme for the Baltimore Review’s summer issue.
Submit work in the fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry categories. We will select 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place winners from among all three categories. So winners could be two poems and one story, one creative nonfiction piece and two stories, etc. You get the picture.
Submit all contest entries, in whatever genre, through the submission system’s Contest category. Trust me. This will work.
