We are pleased to announce the 2017 Brett Elizabeth Jenkins Poetry Prize contest. There are no limitations in form or content; we are interested in everything from traditional forms to free verse to lyric essay to flash fiction.
One winner will receive $500 and one runner-up will receive $250.
Submit up to three poems / pieces (five pages maximum) per entry. You are more than welcome to enter the contest more than once provided you pay the fee of $12 for each entry.
Please put all poems in one document, as only one document is permitted per entry.
Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but know that if your poem(s) or piece(s) are accepted elsewhere, we cannot refund your contest entry. We also cannot accept revisions on poems; you are welcome to withdraw the whole submission and resubmit. If you need to withdraw a poem due to acceptance at another publication, please leave a note in Submittable. Please only use the "Withdraw" feature if you need to withdraw the whole of your submission.
Please only submit original work that has not appeared in any form, online or in print.
Please make certain all identifying material is removed from the manuscript.
All work submitted to this contest will be considered for publication in the Winter Solstice issue, which will be published on December 21.
This year's judge will be Sun Yung Shin
Please send us your best work! We look forward to reading it!
