Poetry Competition: Tupelo Quarterly Inaugural Poetry Contest

Tupelo Quarterly Inaugural Poetry Contest
Online submission deadline: August 15

Tupelo Press has launched a new online literary magazine, Tupelo Quarterly, and with it an inaugural poetry contest: the winner will receive $1,000 and publication in the first issue of Tupelo Quarterly. The prize is currently open for submissions of one to five stunning, unpublished poems of any style or sensibility. Using the online submission manager, poets residing in the United States and abroad may submit up to five previously unpublished poems in English with a $20 entry fee by August 15.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome; translations are not eligible. Ilya Kaminsky will judge. The winner and three runners-up will be announced with the release of the first issue on October 15. All finalists will be considered for publication.

Open submissions (with no contest entry fee) will begin with Issue 2. Please visit our website for more information, and we look forward to reading your work.
