Editor’s Prize in Poetry: $500

Judged by Ada Limón

The winner of the second annual Porter House Review Editor's Prize in Poetry will receive $500 and publication. All submitted works will be considered for publication. Porter House Review is dedicated to paying all of our featured writers a competitive rate for accepted works.     

We seek poetic works that capture experience by reinvigorating the language of the everyday, or surprising readers with novel, rarefied text. We are particularly interested in poetry that champions inventive forms and content.

To submit, please follow these guidelines:

  • Submit a maximum of 5 pages or less (per $10.00 reading fee).
  • All entries will be read blind. Before you submit, please remove your name and any other identifying information from your manuscript. (Texas State University students, alumni, and faculty members are not eligible.)
  • All work must be submitted through our Submittable portal. We do not accept paper or emailed submissions.
  • All submitted work must be previously unpublished. Simultaneous  submissions are accepted, but please immediately withdraw from our contest if you place your work elsewhere.
