Interviews with poets and reviews of poetry books are read year-round.
Submissions have closed for the annual Wishing Jewel Prize, which awards $1000 and publication for an innovative, book-length manuscript that challenges expectations of what a book of poems can be. Named for an essay in Anne Carson’s Plainwater, we seek work that questions the boundaries of genre, form, or mode while engaging the rich possibilities of lyrical expression. The contest is open September through November. All finalists are considered for publication.
The open-reading period for chapbook manuscripts has closed. We will accept submissions again from December 20, 2022, through March 20, 2023.
We accept mailed submissions from incarcerated individuals and waive any fees (208 Broad Street South; Grinnell, IA 50112); otherwise, please use the link below to send your work. We look forward to it!
