$1,000 and publication in JuxtaProse Literary Magazine will be awarded to the winning poem. Up to three additional poems, each by a different author, may be awarded "Honorable Mention" status, for which they will receive $100 and publication. All entries will be considered for publication, regardless of whether they receive honorable mention status. In order to be eligible, poems must not have been previously published in any form -- including any form of online publication.
An entry fee applies to all submissions. Entries should contain between one and five poems, and each poem should be no longer than two pages. Any poem which exceeds this length, and entry which contains more than five poems, may be subject to disqualification. Authors may enter multiple times but will be charged a separate entry fee each time. No revisions will be accepted to entries once submitted.
Winners, including the first prize winner and any honorable mentions, will be announced on or before December 15, 2020. JuxtaProse reserves the right to extend the contest deadline as necessary, so long as the winners are announced by this date.
Entries which do not abide by these submission guidelines may be subject to disqualification. All entry fees are non-refundable.
