Poetry Competition: Locked Horn Press Read Water Anthology

LHP 2017 Read Water Publication Prize!

Prize: $250 + 2 contributor copies

Reading fee: $10

Deadline: September 30, 2017 (all work considered for publication)

Locked Horn Press is welcoming poems for our next anthology, Read Water: poems written in relation to bodies of water, or histories of water, or myths or fantasies or memories of water.

We want to read poems in which water implicates, evaporates, melts, carries, precipitates. Water that has been and is exploited. And protected. Water as witness, water as catalyst, as carrier, as distance, as adjoiner, as resistance, storyteller, poet, violence, love. Because, of course—and with gratitude to those who carry this most—water is life.

LHP 2017 Read Water Publication Prize Guidelines:

Pieces entered for the 2017 Publication Contest should be in conversation with the LHP 2017 theme. Please send up to 3 unpublished poems in a single file via our submittable, accessible through our website. Translations are welcome as long as neither the original or translation has been previously published, and the translator has permission to publish both the original and translation. If one or more of these poems is accepted for publication prior to hearing back from us, please notify us at:

lockedhornpressATgmailDOTorg (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
