KNIGHTVILLE POETRY CONTEST: $1,000 for an exceptional poem in any form. Three poems per entry. Up to 150 lines per poem.
Judged by National Book Award Finalist and author of "Fast Animal" TIM SEIBLES.
THE NEW GUARD VOLUME IV contest readers are looking forward to reading your work! You can submit online via this submissions manager. The entry fee is $15. We no longer accept submissions by postal mail.
They accept .doc or similar files–no PDFs, please. They do pay strict attention to word and line count. They accept previously unpublished work only. Any size print run or online publication (including blogs and/or social networking) disqualify an entry. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, provided they're notified upon publication elsewhere. If they accept your story or poem for publication, it is accepted that you will remove that story or poem from all other contests upon their acceptance of your work.
Contest winners and all finalists get one free copy of The New Guard, and each submission will be carefully considered for publication. Final judging is blind.
TNG retains standard first publication rights; all rights immediately revert to the writer upon publication. Please note that TNG cannot return manuscripts. They are presently accepting contest submissions only. More details may be found here.
