We hope you’re staying cool so far this summer; sitting in the shade with your notepad, applying those finishing touches to your poem about the love of your life, a road trip across America, or your dog Satchel. If so, we’d like to read it! Submissions for our Summer Poetry Contest begin today! Poetry is a large portion of the submissions we receive, so for all you poets out there, whether you’ve been published before or need a little boost of confidence, we’d like to honor the art form and showcase real talent and interesting voices.

OFFICIAL RULES: Submit 1-3 poems to submissions@lckpublishing.com for consideration. Poems previously published (book, ebook, literary journal, etc.) will be disqualified. Poems included in compilations already under consideration by LCk will also be disqualified. We’re looking for exciting, poignant, fresh, and unique poetry. The winner will receive $50 as well as their poem featured on our website until the end of time.

Submissions for our Summer contest start August 1st and will end August 25th. A winner will be chosen and announced shortly thereafter.

Best of luck.
