Rattle Magazine Poetry Prize

44rd400

The 2014 Rattle Poetry Prize

DEADLINE: JULY 15TH

Below are the details from the website, which also includes examples of prize-winning entries from previous years. The entry fee ($20) is a one-year subscription to Rattle.

“The annual Rattle Poetry Prize offers $5,000 for a single poem to be published in the winter issue of the magazine. Ten finalists will also receive $100 each and publication, and be eligible for the $1,000 Readers’ Choice Award, to be selected by subscriber and entrant vote.

Additional poems from the entries are frequently offered publication as well. In 2013 we published 21 poems that had been submitted to the contest from over 2,000 entries.

With the winners judged in a blind review by the editors to ensure a fair and consistent selection, an entry fee that is simply a one-year subscription to the magazine—and now a large Readers’ Choice Award to be chosen by the writers themselves—we’ve designed the Rattle Poetry Prize to be one of the most writer-friendly contests around.”
