Submit to Quarto, have Lena Dunham judge your writing

Two days into spring break, you might be wondering what exactly you’re going to do with yourself for the next week. Instead of robbing a diner to hang out in South Beach with James Franco and Gucci Mane's terrible acting, consider submitting to Quarto’s writing contest. This year, the nonfiction category is being judged by none other than Barnard Medal of Distinction winner Lena Dunham.

“Maybe it’s just about optimism,” Quarto’s outreach editor, Ikem Leigh, CC ’15, said about landing such a big name to judge nonfiction entries. “We had an editor in chief who was very willing about reaching out to a bunch of different publicists just seeing who would respond to us, and luckily she [Dunham] did and said she would be interested.”

In case nonfiction (up to 15 pages) isn’t your thing, Quarto is also seeking submissions of fiction shorter than 20 pages and poems (up to three) that are spring-themed.

Sam Lipsyte, novelist and chair of the graduate creative writing program at the School of Arts, will judge the fiction submissions. Quarto’s faculty adviser, Dorothea Lasky—whose poetry has been published in the New Yorker, the Paris Review, and other outlets, will be judging the poetry entries.

By landing Dunham, Quarto is showing that it’s not the only literary magazine on campus that can land big names—4x4, which was started by many students who worked for Quarto before a shakeup last fall, had its contest judged by Joyce Carol Oates.

As with the 4x4 contest, editors will be paring down the submissions that go to their famous judge. Dunham will end up reading five pieces that editors decide to pass along to her.

Quarto is accepting entries until March 25 and has a page for submissions on its website.

certainly like your website but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to
tell the reality on the other hand I will surely come again again.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
