Loraine Williams Poetry Prize, deadline May 15


The Georgia Review is accepting submissions for the fourth annual Loraine Williams Poetry Prize—$1,000 and publication in our Spring 2017 issue for a single poem, never before published either in print or online.

The submission period ends 15 May 2016, with the winning poem to be announced on 15 August 2016. The editorial staff of The Georgia Review will read and evaluate all entries. In consultation with the rest of the staff, editor Stephen Corey will make the final decisions about the winning entry and any other poems to be accepted for publication. Loraine Williams, the prize’s sponsor, is an Atlanta-based patron of the arts.
