Submissions For Our Contests Now Open

It's contest season! We're now reading submissions for our 2014 Milt Kessler Memorial Prize in Poetry and our 2014 Harpur Palate Creative Nonfiction Contest. You can read the details below or at our Contests Page.


The 2014 Milt Kessler Memorial Prize in Poetry



The entry fee is only $15 for this contest, and you can submit up to five poems for consideration per entry fee. Each entry fee includes a year subscription to Harpur Palate. The winner receives $500 and two contributor copies of their issue. We'll also highlight you on our website and promote you via social media. Multiple submissions for contests are allowed, and simultaneous submissions are encouraged.

Look at our archive page to see what sorts of work we've liked in the past. Better yet, purchase a subscription! You can do that via Submittable.

Our editors depend on reading blind submissions, so please don't include identifiable information on the manuscript itself. Leave that for the cover letter. If you'd like to submit a snail mail submission, you can address it to the appropriate editor and mail it to this address:


Harpur Palate
Binghamton University
English Department
PO Box 6000
Binghamton, NY 13902-6000

We prefer online submissions via Submittable. The deadline to submit is November 15, 2014.






The 2014 Harpur Palate Creative Nonfiction Contest



Like our poetry contest, the entry fee is only $15 and includes a year subscription to Harpur Palate. Please limit submissions to 8,000 words. The winner receives $500 and two contributor copies of their issue. We'll also highlight you on our website and promote you via social media. Multiple submissions for contests are allowed, and simultaneous submissions are encouraged.
