    Love the name.

    I’m keen to send an entry to the Feminartsy Memoir prize, but have a few questions. When will the prize be announced? What happens to the piece after that? Is the prize-winning piece published online? Would it then matter if the work appeared elsewhere in the future?

      Hi Liana,
      Thanks for your comment! The winning entry will indeed be published online (with the author’s permission), but the author will retain copyright and is completely welcome to publish it elsewhere as well.
