26 August 2011
KNIGHTVILLE POETRY CONTEST $1,000 for an exceptional work of narrative or experimental poetry. Three poems per entry. Up to 300 lines per poem. Judged by former U.S. Poet Laureate CHARLES SIMIC.

MACHIGONNE FICTION CONTEST $1,000 for an exceptional work of literary or experimental fiction. Submit up to 7,500 words of prose: we’re accepting flash, long stories and everything in between. Novel excerpts are welcomed, as long as the manuscript functions as a stand-alone story. Judged by novelist and author of The Pure Lover, DAVID PLANTE. 

Previously unpublished work only. Each submission will be considered for publication. The fee for each contest entry is $15. Judging is blind. We take contest ethics very seriously and are a proud member of CLMP (please see for more details).

Entries may be made online via our submissions manager or through postal mail to the address below with a check for $15 and a SASE. This year’s submissions period runs until Sept. 22 for both genres. International submissions are accepted.
