    Perhaps I am missing something but I see nothing on your web site concerning the guidelines for your poetry contest as your ad advises.

    • Hi Joe,

      Here’s a copy of our revised submission guidelines:

      ALLIGATOR JUNIPER CONTEST SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

      Submissions may be made either online or by mail. To submit online, visit our website, alligatorjuniper.org. Visit Love Notes or our blog at alligatorjuniper to learn more about our annual contests.

      National Writing Contest in Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, and Poetry
      $1,000 First Place Prize in Each Genre
      Selection Process

      All entries are read and discussed by Prescott College writing students and supervised by distinguished writers in each genre. Due to the rotating nature of our editorial staff, each issue has a unique aesthetic, but we always look for work that moves us: both traditional and experimental. All entrants receive a personal letter from one of our staff regarding the status of their submission, as well as key feedback on the piece. We appreciate your patience as we devote individual attention to each manuscript and typically inform contest entrants in January. While our aesthetic varies from year to year, we do recommend ordering a few back issues to get a sense of the variety and quality of works we publish.

      Submission Guidelines
      Reading period is August 15-October 15 Annually.
      Maximum length: 30 pages of prose or five poems.
