We’re thrilled to announce a new contest judged by J. M. Coetzee.

In addition to receiving prizes, the winners will also be featured in our Winter 2020 issue, joining an exceptional roster of contributors that includes Mario Vargas Llosa, Herta Müller, Can Xue, Ismail Kadare, László Krasznahorkai, Stefan Zweig, Dubravka Ugrešić, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Anita Raja, and Sawako Nakayasu.
