Poetry Contests

FREE ENTRY – Pith of Prose & Poem Contest ($300 in cash prizes) – concīs, DEADLINE: Sept. 15, 2016

I recently came across concīs, a fairly new lit mag that not only pays contributors, but also supports Room to Read, an organization dedicated to educating children in need in Asia and Africa. You can opt to donate your payment and concīs will double it. They also provide a Donation Tracker so you can see how much they have donated so far.

And now they are running a contest with no entry fees! Same donation opportunities apply to you can donate with your entry if you’d like to contribute. Not only are there cash prizes, but you’ll also receive postcards featuring your winning work and publication in a special digital issue.

concis

concīs magazine—the first project from concīs publishing—is an online and e-pub journal devoted to brevity: the succinct, pithy, condensed, laconic, crisp, compressed and compendious. It’s simple in approach and simple in design…but not simple-minded. Genre—if you believe in such labels—is unimportant: poems, prose poems, flash fictions, micro-essays, reviews in miniature, sudden fictions, haiku, tanka, American Sentences, insights, epigrams, the unclassifiable…they’re all good.”

To learn more about what they are looking for, you can read this interview with the editor: Six Questions for Chris Lott. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
