Sixth Annual Poetry Contest: Narrative — Deadline July 20 2014 — FREE

A COMPLETE LITTLE UNIVERSE. That was William Carlos Williams’s definition of a poem. And it’s ours too. We’re looking for poems that, in a brief space, capture a complete universe.

The Sixth Annual Poetry Contest is open to all writers, and all entries will be considered for publication.

Deadline: Sunday, July 20, at midnight, PDT.

$1,500 First Prize

$750 Second Prize
$300 Third Prize
Ten finalists receive $75 each

See the Guidelines. Read prior winners.

Emerging poets account for a third of the scores of poets whom Narrative publishes each year.

Many of our contest winners go on to find agents, win other awards, and publish books.

We are committed to paying our authors, to providing excellent editorial support, and to encouraging a wide audience for poetry.
