  • The Miller Williams Poetry Prize 2022
Miller Williams Poetry Prize 2022


Every year, the University of Arkansas Press accepts submissions for the Miller Williams Poetry Series and from the books selected awards the $5,000 Miller Williams Poetry Prize in the following summer.

 For almost a quarter century the press has made this series the cornerstone of its work as a publisher of some of the country’s best new poetry. The series and prize are named for and operated to honor the cofounder and longtime director of the press, Miller Williams.

Series editor Patricia Smith serves as the judge for the Miller Williams Poetry Prize. With the help of screeners, she awards to three authors publication in the series. 

This is the most significant award the press can offer: the opportunity for the author’s work to be published with all the dedication and expertise we have to offer. We provide professional copyediting by expert poetry editors, design and production by veteran designers who specialize in the typesetting of verse, and production managed by a house with a history of printing first-rate books.

 We believe this offers the poet the best possible opportunity to connect with his or her audience in print. This prize goes to all three books selected for the series. 

Three of the books are announced as finalists for the Miller Williams Poetry Prize. One is further chosen as the winner of the prize and receives $5,000 in cash in addition to publication.


The submission deadline for the 2024 Miller Williams Poetry Prize is 30 Sep 2022.

  • Jacklyn Potter Young Poets Competition


The Jacklyn Potter Young Poets Competition provides an annual opportunity for two high school students to read their original work with an established poet in the Joaquin Miller Poetry Series (June and July).

  • Orna Ross Green Stories Novel Prize 
Organised by the University of Southampton, Green Stories is a ‘free’ writing competition project with a range of categories for novelists and short story writers. Entries should conform with positive visions of more sustainable futures and/or the inclusion of green solutions but needn’t have an explicitly green theme. 


Aim of Orna Green Stories Novel Prize

Our mission is to create a cultural body of work that entertains and informs about green solutions, inspires green behaviour and raises awareness of the necessary transformations towards a sustainable economy. Currently most green communications preach to the converted i.e. only those who already care choose to watch climate change documentaries or read books with a green theme. Thus a particular aim is to use fiction as a way to reach a wider audience, and support winning authors to translate their stories into published books


Deadline: 1st December 2022

Eligibility: Open to all adults (18+) of any nationality, as long as the submission is in English and has not been published elsewhere.

Entry Fee: None required

Prize

£1000 for the winner and £500 for runner up, plus the following: 

Half price manuscript appraisal (worth £300-400) for top three entries by established literary consultancy Daniel Goldsmith.
