Poetry and prose competition submissions are considered from three categories: fiction, nonfiction and poetry. There are fantastic prizes:
- Winners in each category receive:
- $100 prize money.
- Free registration to the 2018 Boldface Conference.
- Publication in Issue #20 of Glass Mountain
- An invitation to read at our April launch for Issue #20.
- two complimentary copies of Issue #20.
The contest is open to all emerging writers (i.e. writers who have not attended a Creative Writing MFA or PhD program).
We encourage any emerging authors to apply, and can’t wait to read your submissions!
With all submissions please include a short biography (about 50-100 words) in your cover letter. This should be written in third-person, and tell us about you and any previous publications – if any – of your other creative work. Should you be selected, we will include this on our contributors’ page.
Each submission for the Poetry & Prose contest must be one poem, one story, or one essay. There is no limit on the number of separate submissions. Prose should be a maximum of 15 pages (12-point font, double-spaced, standard margins) and a poem can be up to 5 single-spaced pages. Standard manuscript format applies to both. We are taking submissions internationally.
Submissions to the 2018 Poetry & Prose Contest now OPEN
Please remember, you may not enter this contest if you are a current or former graduate student in creative writing as this is a contest for emerging writers.
Why not also consider attending our Boldface Conference for Emerging Writers in May 2018 (details here)?
