TLR Prose Poetry Contest--No Entry Fee

We are happy to announce our free Prose Poetry Contest for Issue 6 of The Lindenwood Review. Please carefully read and follow the guidelines below in order to have your work considered for the contest:
  • No entry fee.
  • Winner receives $50, publication in Issue 6 of The Lindenwood Review, and three contributor copies. Issue 6 will be published in spring 2016.
  • Honorable Mentions receive publication and three contributor copies of TLR6.
  • Contest entries will be accepted from May 1 through August 1, 2015. Entries received before or after this submission period will not be considered for the contest.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Email responses will only be sent to the winner and honorable mentions (by October 1, 2015). Individual rejection emails will not be sent to entrants who do not place in the contest. Contest entrants should check our Prose Poetry Contest Results page on October 1, 2015, for a list of all acceptances. 
  • For this contest, we will NOT accept simultaneous submissions. Do not submit work that is under consideration elsewhere or that has previously been published in print or online. If your email states that your prose poem is a simultaneous submission, it will not be considered for this contest. (Regular TLR submissions of fiction, poetry, and essay may be simultaneous submissions; click here for submission period and guidelines.)
  • Up to three prose poems may be submitted per writer, but they must all be included in a single Word document, with a document title that includes the author's last name. If separate documents are attached to a submission email, only the first document will be considered for the contest.
  • Put your name and contact information on your submission document.
  • Double-space and use a font that is a standard size and style.
  • Each prose poem should be no longer than one double-spaced page.
  • Email your entry as a Word document attachment to TheLindenwoodReview @ lindenwood.edu. Type Prose Poetry Contest in the subject line of the email. Include a brief third-person bio in the body of the email. 
  • We welcome submissions from both new and established writers. Please note that current Lindenwood University students and faculty are not eligible to submit work to The Lindenwood Review. (LU alumni are eligible to submit.)
  • For more information about our journal, visit our website. Regular submission guidelines for TLR are available here (fiction, poetry, and personal essay, accepted June 1 through November 1). Writers who enter our contest may also send us a separate submission of fiction, poetry, or personal essay during the regular submission period for Issue 6.
