Send poetry or prose. Whole manuscripts are welcome. Send writings of which you are the sole author and that were not written earlier than 1999. Published and unpublished writings are equally welcome. To get a sense of our aesthetics, see our previous volumes. All work will be read by the editors, with finalists judged by Dan Beachy-Quick. Multiple entries are welcome. The deadline is January 31st, 2018. The final decision will be announced in March. In the event that none of the entries meets our standards, no winner will be declared, though this has never yet occurred. The winner will be published in Volume 8 of The Winter Anthology and receive a $1000 honorarium. Finalists will also be considered for publication.
