Spittoon magazine selects a winner for each category among those writers that have been published in the magazine that year. "The editors' decisions when choosing writing for Spittoon awards are based on a number of factors, including--but not limited to--editor consensus across and between genres; unsolicited feedback from readers; and how well the piece fits with the stated mission of the journal."
Winners are featured on the website along with a bio. But best of all is that they receive a trophy in the mail--an authentic spittoon!
