2019 Frontier Award for New Poets submission deadline

September 15

A distinguished panel of emerging poets will guest judge the 2019 Frontier Award for New Poets contest: Ocean Vuong, Kaveh Akbar, and Eve L. Ewing.

Frontier Poetry staff will select the top ten submissions, and the winning poem and honorable mentions will be selected by the panel of judges, to be announced in the fall. The winning poet will be awarded $3000 and publication on Frontier Poetry. Second and third place will win $300 & $200 respectively, as well as publication. The top ten finalists will also be recognized.

Frontier Poetry does not hold preference for any particular style or topic — they simply seek the best poem they can find. Send them work that is blister, that is color, that strikes hot the urge to live and be. Poets from all communities are invited. You, & your words, are welcome here.
