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!)
$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!
- We’ve lowered our contest submission fee to a flat rate–now you can submit any 3 poems for $10. Enter as often as you like! Send us 3 poems or 30, it’s up to you!
- We have a new contest window: Submit from February 1st-May 1st.
