Crazyhorse, a literary journal published by the College of Charleston, announced on Monday that the deadline for its poetry and fiction prizes has been extended. Explaining that they needed a little more time to get their new Web site—complete with electronic submission system—up and running, the journal says that it will now accept entries for the Lynda Hull Memorial Poetry Prize and the Crazyhorse Fiction Prize until January 15.

Writers may submit up to three poems or a story of no more than twenty-five pages via the online entry system or regular mail. A sixteen-dollar entry fee includes a one-year subscription to the magazine. Guidelines are detailed on the Crazyhorse Web site.

The 2009 prize winners are Kary Wayson, a Seattle poet, for "Lives of the Artists," and Elizabeth Oness of Houston, Minnesota, for her story "Protect and Serve." James Tate was the poetry judge, and Ann Patchett selected the winning story. The names of the 2010 judges will be revealed when the winners are announced in the spring. Writers such as Billy Collins, Dean Young, Mary Ruefle, Charles Baxter, and Dan Chaon have served as judges during the awards' nine-year history.
