The Louisiana Literature Prize for Poetry

All work must be previously unpublished, and a name and address must appear on each poem. Send check or money order payable to Louisiana Literature. An SASE may also be sent if notification of receipt is desired. Manuscripts cannot be returned, but entrants should include an SASE for contest results.
