This coming March-April, The Orchard Street Press will conduct its sixth annual Poetry Contest: $500 first place (and the Malovrh-Fenlon Poetry Prize), $300 second, $200 third. Prize-winning and other submitted poems will appear in Quiet Diamonds, our annual poetry journal, and select entrants will be invited to submit chapbooks for possible publication. In 2022 we published 10 chapbooks from entrants to the Contest. We expect to publish a similar number from the ‘23 Contest.
Entrants should submit poems and the $15 fee to: The Orchard Street Press; P.O. Box 280, Gates Mills, Ohio 44040. Entries can also be submitted via our website, orchpress.com.
Submission details: Submit up to four original, unpublished poems (no translations and no single poem longer than two pages). Poems should be typed and should not include the poet’s name on the page. The poet should also send a cover letter (listing the poems and the poet’s contact information--including phone and email) and a SASE for results.
Deadline for submissions is April 30 (postmark).
Feel free to call or email us if you have questions.
