Did you miss us while we were closed to online submissions? Of course you did. And we missed you too!
Our doors are open once more! You can start sending us your wonderful poems at Submittable. We are ready for a new batch. (Though tbh we’re still making our way through contest subs, so we ask for our contest submitters’ continued patience while we finish reading your work–we received nearly 475 submissions this year).
Hope you’re having a great summer writing your hearts out!
It’s summer which means we’re about to take a month off from receiving new work so that we can catch up on all the general/ contest submissions you’ve sent us—well, we will try anyway!
Our Submittable portal will be closed from June 1-30 for general submissions. (Of course, you can always snail mail us work in June if you simply MUST send us your poems.)
We will re-open for new submissions on July 1st.
Attention undergraduate poets–here’s a bright idea for you:
Would you like to see your poem in print AND win $100 prize? Of course you would!
The Dan Veach Prize for Younger Writers is open to undergraduate students from 18-23, and it’s free to enter. (You just need a Submittable account, which is also free, to submit your work.)
Send us two of your best poems, each under 40 lines long, and a recommendation letter from a professor or an adult who knows your writing well and can attest that it’s your own work.
The contest is open until June 1st! Enter here.
(And creative writing professors–please send your brilliant student poets our way!)
That’s right, everyone, our 2019 International Poetry Contest closes on May 15th, which means you have less than a month to get your poems into the contest. What are you waiting for?
$10 lets you submit a packet of 3 poems. Submit as many packets as you want—the more the merrier.
Hurry, hurry! Send us your poems! We’re excited to read your work!
Check out our guidelines for more details! And then submit!
