Deadline approaches for poetry contest

2016 Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition

Tuesday, March 1, the submission window closes. 


The Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition accepts one-poem submissions. The contest awards the winner $200 and publication in "storySouth." The final judge is Sarah Rose Nordgren, author of the poetry collection "Best Bones" (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2014), which was selected by Ed Ochester for the Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize.

See what Nordgren writes: "Sisters" -- "Letter from a New England Girl" -- "1917"


"StorySouth" is a premier online literary magazine that has published luminaries such as Cathy Smith Bowers, Jim Seay, and William Wright. You can read last year's Randall Jarrell Poetry Competition finalists in a special section of Issue 39: Spring 2015 at www.storysouth.com.
