WOW! goes from online to print mag

Bucking the trends, Galway-based ezine WOW! (Words on the Web) will be a print mag from Spring 2010 and its contents will consist of the best entries for the WOW! Awards.

Other than publication, I see no mention of prize money for the WOW! Awards but I'll contact the organisers and ask, and update this anon.*

The WOW! Awards are for both poetry and fiction.
The first print edition of WOW! will appear in the spring of 2010 and will feature the three WOW! Award Winners in both categories plus 7 runners-up.
You could be in it!
The closing date for entries for a WOW! Award is September 1st 2009.


Poetry: maximum number of lines 50
Fiction: maximum number of words 3000

Entries by email as a MS Word attachment to
Or by post to: WOW! Award, Six San Antonio Park, Salthill, Galway, Ireland.

Entry Fee

Poetry: €5 per poem Two Poems €8 Three Poems €10
Fiction €10 per story Two Stories €16 Three Stories €20

* Update: prize is publication.

Great - so refreshing to see someone going from online to print these days rather than vice versa ... good luck to them!

Thanks for this tip off, it's nice to see such a nominal fee for entry too, some of the amounts I've seen are the difference between the rent getting paid or not!

I can envisage this story submitting business getting quite addictive!

It is really unusual to hear of a web mag going to print, rather than t'other way round, as whereimbloggingfrom said, I hope it is really successful for all concerned.
