Send Your Poems

Don't forget, we're currently accepting submissions to the Milt Kessler Memorial Prize for poetry. Send us your excellent, unpublished 3-5 poems. You could win $500 and a highlighted publication in the journal. We also pick finalists and consider all submitted poems for publication in the journal. Your $15 entry fee not only helps support a small literary journal, but gets you a one year subscription to Harpur Palate, so everyone's a winner! Check out our contest page for more details.
