Buckman Journal Poetry Prize
February 14, 2022 @ 8:00 am - February 27, 2022 @ 11:59 pmFree
The award-winning Buckman Journal is pleased to open submissions for the Buckman Journal Poetry Award, February 14 – 27, 2022.
One poet will receive $300.00, and their work featured in Buckman Journal. The prize is open to Oregon and SW Washington residents only. There is no entry fee.
Please send no more than five pages of unpublished poems. Simultaneous submissions are fine if noted in the cover letter. All styles are welcome, however Buckmxn favors the brave. Poets who use a word in an unexpected manner, lyrical without heavy handed and multiple adjectives, employ a joy working the sound and rhythm of words, strike Buckmxn most. Buckmxn also notes that there a lot of poems written solidly, squarely in the 1st person. Consider this if you want to stand out of the crowd.
As always, Buckmxn reserves First North American Serial Rights, with the copyright reverting back to the author after the initial publication date.
Please submit .docx or .pdf files only, use a readable font and be sure to include the following in your cover letter: Name, author’s name (if different), a brief autobiographical bio, and preferred pronouns.
We are a small operation so we cannot guarantee a fixed turnaround time, just know that we will energetically read and respond to submissions as soon as we are able. We thank you for your interest and look forward to reading your words! Feel free to share this opportunity with other local writers.
