Chautauqua Institution is once again accepting entries for The Chautauqua Janus Prize, now in its second year and boasting a doubled prize amount of $5,000. The Institution’s newest literary prize celebrates an emerging writer’s single work of short fiction or nonfiction for daring formal and aesthetic innovations that upset and reorder readers’ imaginations. In addition to receiving the $5,000 award, the winner will give a lecture on the grounds during the 2019 summer season and appear in a forthcoming issue of the literary journal Chautauqua. The prize is funded by a generous donation from Chautauquans Barbara and Twig Branch. The 2019 winner will be selected by guest judge Vi Khi Nao, who will also lead a prose workshop during the 2019 summer season with the Chautauqua Writers’ Center.
