2015 Yemassee Writing Prizes

The 2015 Pocataligo Poetry Contest will be judged by National Book Award-winning poet Nikky Finney (Head Off & Split). $10 to enter, $500 + publication to the winner.
The 2015 Inaugural Non-Fiction Contest will be judged by author Paul Bogard (The End of Night). $5 to enter, $250 + publication to the winner.
We’ve made a few changes this year — we have added a non-fiction contest and all three of our contests (the William Richey Short Fiction Contest, the Pocataligo Poetry Contest, and the Inaugural Non-Fiction Contest) are open right now until January 15, 2015. All submissions will be considered for publication in the magazine. Additionally, entrants have the option of signing up for a one-year subscription at the amazingly low price of $2!
Details & submission guidelines available on our Submittable page.
