Featured Poet Competition

Hi there elephants! As winter comes to a close the publication of our Spring Issue is fast approaching. General submissions open on March 1st BUT so do submissions for our Featured Artist Competition!

This year we want to honor with each issue a special, stand-out artist for their work! Since our Spring Issue releases in April, which is National Poetry Month, we’re looking to feature a talented poet!

What does being the featured poet entail? Well if you are the lucky poet selected you will have a full profile spread about you in our Spring Issue with a bio, photo, several pieces of your work, as well as any social media links you’d like promoted. But you will ALSO be listed on our Featured Artists Page which will be coming soon and be able to be found under the ‘About’ tab. And of course, same as we pay our contributors the featured artist will be paid $15.

To submit to the April 2020 Featured Poet Competition please send an email to theelephantladder@gmail.com and include the following as attachments:

  • A cover letter explaining who you are, a little bit about your writing history, and why you think YOU should be our featured poet.
  • A packet of 3-5 poems, single spaced, 12pt. font, Times New Roman, no more than 10 pages in total length.

*NOTE* Your poetry packet does not have to match the theme of the Spring Issue (Gods & Goddesses). The theme only applies to general submissions.

You can submit to both general submissions AND the Featured Poet Contest. However if you are chosen as the Featured Poet your general submission will no longer be eligible for publication.

Submissions for the April 2020 Featured Poet Contest open on March 1st and close on April 1st!
