A prize of $1,000 and publication in Louisiana Cultural Vistas Magazine is given annually for a group of poems. The winner also receives an all-access pass to the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival (valued at $600) in March 2018 to give a reading. Writers who have not published a book of poetry with a traditional publisher are eligible. Jericho Brown will judge. Submit two to four poems totaling no more than 400 lines with a $15 entry fee by November 15. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
