Lengthy Poem Contest 2024

Submit to Defenestrationism's Lengthy Poem Contest 2024, organized in memory of Christine Gawn Wick

A total amount of 300 U.S. dollars will be offered to a single winner of a Lengthy Poem Contest.

Submission for the 2024 Lengthy Poem Contest is now open to close January 1st, 2024.

Submission Guidelines For 2024 Lengthy Poem Contest 2024

Your work must include line breaks, no prose poems.

Must be at least 120 lines, not counting the title, partitions between stanzas, or paratextual elements– such as epigraphs or dedications– while no longer than, roughly, chapbook length.

Due to reasons of our internet publication and its daily posts, best to divide the work into parts or sections of some sort, though this is certainly not a strict requirement. 

Parts should be separately titled, numbered or otherwise differentiated from one another.

Uninterrupted works will still be considered.

Poem cycles will be considered.

Should be a clear thread connecting the work. May help establishing such a thread to include a defense, or argument, or some thoughts before or after the poem. 

This may be published, at your prerogative, alongside the rest of the work.

Send your best work. You will write better, soon.

Describing taste for poems is a mostly futile endeavor, so here are contest judge Paul-Newell Reaves’ favorite poets, along with three poets that he does not appreciate.

W.B. Yeats for his epiphanies; Elizabeth Bishop for her softness; Kahlil Gibran for his philosophizing; Jane Shore for her characters; T.S. Eliot for his grandiosity ; Lauryn Hill for her meta-narratives.

Does not appreciate:
Wallace Stevens;
W.S. Merwin;
Edmund Spenser

We do not read blind. Actually, we’d like to know a little bit about you, so please include a cover letter in your submission email.

Our proudest moments are the opportunities to present under-published authors. If you have none or few prior publications, be sure to tell us.

Please include the title of your work above your poem.

Please include a line count.

Please include a phone number, should our replies be lost. In no way will it be distributed or published.

Email all you wish us to consider in a single downloadable document–

PDFs are difficult to transcribe to our site, so are not preferred–

MUST include the subject line “Lengthy Poem Contest”

Also Note

Defenestrationism.net requires only Electronic Rights– including Electronic Archival Rights– and Author maintains all Future Rights.

We adhere strictly to CLMP contest code of ethics.

Please do not submit if you have any affiliation with contest judge Paul-Newell Reaves.
