Writers and artists who appear at Mercer County area events such as poetry readings
are also eligible. Organizers of such events should encourage those who work and/or
live in the county to submit a short non-fiction critically informed review of the event;
the editors will contact the writer/artist to extend an invitation to appear in the
Review. We see this as an opportunity to promote such literary and artistic
occasions and venues within the county.
We invite proposals for non-fiction articles on any topic relevant to the people,
history, businesses, educational institutions, artistic traditions and/or government of
Mercer County and the surrounding area. “Creative non-fiction” also falls into this category.
Except for art and poetry, the Review generally only accepts one item per author.
