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.
