Founded in 2005 by Neil Aitken, Boxcar Poetry Review is a quarterly online journal featuring the work of emerging and established poets as well as book reviews and interviews. The publication is especially committed to promoting the next generation of poets and their work, and therefore encourages publishers, presses, and poets to submit first books (no chapbooks) for review. Recently reviewed books include The Organ Builder by Austin MacRae, Voices Through Skin by Theresa Senato Edwards, and Gust by Greg Alan Brownderville.
Find details about every creative writing competition—including poetry contests, short story competitions, essay contests, awards for novels, grants for translators, and more—that we’ve published in the Grants & Awards section of Poets & Writers Magazine during the past year. We carefully review the practices and policies of each contest before including it in the Writing Contests database, the most trusted resource for legitimate writing contests available anywhere.
