Driftwood Press Poem Contest 2021


  • Submitters may send up to five poems in a single document for consideration.

  • Each poem must not exceed sixty lines.

  • Prose poetry, experimental poetry, and poetry with a visual element are all welcome. Collaborations are also welcome, just know that you will be required to evenly split the $400 USD reward money amongst however many contributors there are.

  • We do not accept translations, and any submissions should be written primarily in English.

  • Do not include any identifying information (name, email, etc.) within your submitted document. We read all work blind, and failure to follow this rule will result in a rejected and unread submission.

  • You may include a cover letter/biography in the form space below, but these are not read by editors and hold no sway in our selection process.

  • Submission fee is $10.00 USD. Additionally, we are offering a $23 dollar submission option that will include a print copy of the issue in which the winning poem will be published.


    • Submissions will be open from September 1st to January 15th.

    • Winner will be announced in April 2021.

    • Winner will be published in 2021.
