Poetry and Prose Contest Starts July 1

Updated: Jul 1

This year’s poetry and prose contest and fundraiser window will be open from July 1 at 12 AM, EST, through July 30, at 11:59 PM, EST. It is our last submission opportunity of the year.

There will be a $50 top prize in each category (poetry and story), plus $25 each for honorable mentions. So, in the poetry category, there will be a $50 top prize winner, plus two $25 honorable mentions chosen. Ditto for stories.

Entries should only be sent to

Please put “Poetry Contest 2024” or “Short Story Contest 2024” in the subject line of your email.

We will notify you of receipt of submissions only, if your submission is not chosen. Those chosen will be contacted by email no later than September 1. So if we haven’t reached out to you by then, your work has not been chosen. The winning entries will be published in the fall, specific date to be announced.

It’s a huge mistake to not read our guidelines and to not read our latest issue before submitting. So to help your chances, please do both.

We look forward to reading your submissions.
