Final Judge: Ada Limón
We will consider only original collections of poems written in English. (You may include individual poems that have appeared elsewhere.) Students, colleagues, and close friends of Ada Limónl (the 2014 judge), and current students and employees of Georgetown College are not eligible.
One winning manuscript will be awarded a $1,500 prize, publication of the book, and 20 author's copies.
Manuscripts should be typewritten, single-spaced, and between 48 and 80 pages long. No more than one poem should appear on a page. A clean and legible manuscript is recommended. Do not send your only copy of the manuscript since manuscripts are not returned. We assume no responsibility for damaged or lost manuscripts. All submissions must be accompanied by a $20 entry fee.
Submit two title pages for the collection. The author's name, address, daytime phone number, and email address should appear on the first title page only, along with an acknowledgment listing poems published elsewhere. The author's name should appear nowhere else in the manuscript. The second title page should only include the title of the collection.
ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FEBRUARY 15th, 2014.
For submitting a hard copy submission, please see the guidelines here.
$1,000 and publication to the winning short story, poem, or essay on any theme or subject.
All genres welcome.
Submissions must be submitted by or before October 15, 2014.
Entry fee is $10 for the first entry, $5 for each entry thereafter. One poem, story, or essay counts as one entry.
If you want your work returned or want to receive a notice about the winner and runners-up, you must send us a stamped, self-addressed envelope. However, we will post a list of the work we choose on our website after the contest is judged, and we will do our best to have this list up by February 2015.
The magazine’s editors will judge.
Simultaneous and multiple submissions are okay. Your name can appear on your work as well, and in fact, we prefer that your name, address and email address appear on your entries. We have a small editorial staff and would not award the prize to any colleagues, students, or friends. You do not need a cover sheet.
All entries are considered for publication. If your work is published, Georgetown Review acquires first North American rights, which means that after we publish the piece the rights to it revert back to you.
