Breakwater Review would like to announce its Inaugural Poetry Contest, offering $500 in prizes with no entry fee!
Our esteemed judge is Gail Mazur, whose distinguished work includes six collections of poetry, most recently Figures in a Landscape (U. of Chicago, 2011). Gail was awarded the 2006 Massachusetts Book Award for Zeppo’s First Wife: New & Selected Poems. Her poems have been included in two Pushcart Prize Anthologies.
The top three winners will receive cash prizes of $300, $150 and $50, respectively, along with publication in Breakwater Review Issue 7, forthcoming this June.
- Only one poem may be submitted to the contest per entrant.
- Entries should be submitted through our online submissions manager. Please make sure to include “POETRY CONTEST:” at the beginning of that poem’s title field, after which the poem’s title can follow.
- All entries will be automatically considered for publication in Breakwater Review Issue 7.
- If you would like to enter an already-submitted poem for contest consideration, either log in and edit the title of that submission as described, or email email@example.com with your name and the title of the poem.
Deadline: May 15th. The winners will be announced and published in Breakwater Issue 7, publishing on June 1st!
Because we are a student-run online literary magazine—and we sympathize with writing all those little checks—there is no entry fee for this contest!
