Editorial Focus

Inspired by the small plot of apple trees near Cambridge, England, where writers have gathered for years with their books and pens, The Orchards Poetry Journal is released biannually, in print and online. In each issue, the editors choose three poems to nominate for the Pushcart Prize. 

Tips From the Editor

While we encourage rhymed verse in traditional forms, we also accept finely wrought free verse.

The Orchards issues “The Grantchester Award.,” in which editors select two poems for first and second place to receive a cash payment.

Prizes:
First place is $50.00.
Second place is $30.00.
