The Big Brick Review is a new nonfiction online journal that seeks personal essays which build on the narrative of our lives, finding new insight to old struggles…old insight to new struggles…and all shades-of-gray in between.

Now accepting submissions for the first annual essay contest; judges include Lammy award winning authors Alison Smith and Georgia Beers.

For 2015, the contest theme is loosely based on the concept of ‘building.’ Creative interpretation welcomed. Essays must be narrative non-fiction (that is, they must explore a truth of a human experience as interpreted/experienced by the author) and will be judged on overall strength of writing, compelling content/theme, and interesting style/voice. Maximum length 2000 words.

Deadline for contest submission is Feb 17, 2015. See here for more details.
