Entry Fees

You may submit multiple pieces as long as each is accompanied by a separate entry fee. One poetry submission may include up to 5 unrelated (or related) poems.


$100 and potential publication in our magazine, “AZURE: A Journal of Literary Thought”


Both previously published and unpublished works are eligible, provided that publication on the Lazuli Literary Group website does not infringe on previously held rights. A cover letter is not required and will not affect the success of your submission. ​We want work that grows in complexity upon each visitation; we enjoy ornate, cerebral, and voluptuous prose or poetry executed with thematic intent. Writers we admire are Zadie Smith, Virginia Woolf, Tom Wolfe, Jorge Luis Borges, Charles Dickens, Toni Morrison, Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Tom Stoppard, John Keene, and James Baldwin.
