You're accessing this slice of literary goodness for free because we believe anyone and everyone should be able to access the best in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. And because we don't ask our readers to pay for Guernica, we do—for web hosting, server costs, and the other incidentals necessary to keep Guernica up and running, and, most importantly, open and available to as many people as possible, around the world.
If like us you believe in a widely accessible Guernica, consider supporting the magazine with a tax deductible donation or by subscribing. We'll only be asking for two weeks, three times a year—asking for support from readers like you on your own terms: our all-volunteer staff gives to Guernica out of love, and we extend that friendship to you. If you love Guernica, click to help make sure an ever-growing community can continue to read, react, and participate. Each month, more than 100,000 unique readers visit guernicamag.com—even a small amount, a couple of dollars, from just half of those visitors would sustain us for many, many moons.
Our infinite thanks,
The Guernica Team

The DISQUIET International Literary Program grants the Dzanc Books/Guernica International Literature Award yearly to poetry, fiction, or nonfiction by a North American writer that addresses themes or settings beyond the U.S. and Canada. The recipient will receive a full scholarship to DISQUIET 2013, two weeks of writing workshops and cultural programs to take place in Lisbon from June 30-July 12, as well as the publication of the winning entry in Guernica. Finalists and selected entrants will receive partial scholarships.
In 2012, novelist Colson Whitehead awarded the International Literature Award to Kaitlin Solimine for her short story “American Nurse.” Set in wartime China, the story offers an intimate glimpse of memory, struggle, and moral failure.
The entry fee is $15 and applicants may submit up to three poems or a single prose piece no more than thirty double-spaced pages in length. Submissions can be uploaded using the ILP International Literature Award form at https://disquietinternational.submittable.com/submit. To submit applications through the mail, please visit the DISQUIET website for instructions.
The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2013. For more details, go to http://disquietinternational.org or contact email@example.com
Readers like you make Guernica possible. Please show your support.
