The Louisiana Literature Prize

Poems may be on any topic. All work must be previously unpublished,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.
