You may submit up to three entries (at $15/entry) in any or all genres:
Submit 3-5 poems or one long poem (5+ pages) per entry. Combine all poems into a single document. For poetry, we are seeking not just the best poem, but the best set of 3-5 poems or the best long poem, with the hopes of awarding our prizes to poetry sets or long poems rather than individual, shorter poems, when possible. No maximum lines per poem.
Submit one story, up to 5,000 words total, or up to three flash fictions (up to 1,000 words each) per entry.
Submit one essay or article, up to 5,000 words total, or up to three flash essays (up to 1,000 words each) per entry. We will consider all nonfiction, but are most interested in creative nonfiction, including personal essays, lyric essays, memoir, literary journalism, and other literary forms.
