Now in its 14th year of publishing bright, original, and sometimes edgy fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry, Emrys Press held its second poetry chapbook competition in 2017. From over three hundred entries, Amanda and the Man Soul by Mary B. Moore of Huntington, WV, was selected winner by Dorianne Laux. The poems are spectacular, the book design beautiful, copies now available at $14.00. Building on this success, we will open the Submittable doors for our third annual poetry competition in May, 2018, to be judged by poet Heather McHugh. We anticipate adding fiction and essay contests in the future. Please follow us on Facebook and other social media, in magazines and journals, and watch for new opportunities to publish with us. If you are a writer looking for a home, think of Emrys Press. The Emrys Journal takes submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from August to November 1st. You can find many worthy older publications in the Emrys Press BOOKSTORE. Happy Writing!
