Kinsman Poetry slam

Call For Submissions

Kinsman Quarterly is conducting a global competition in search of unique, contemporary poetry for the upcoming collection, SLAM! Poetry slams are traditionally live competitions, featuring poets who perform works that are created on the spot, and we hope to receive submissions with that sense of spontaneity. Winners receive up to $300 in cash prizes and publication in the poetry series. Poets can submit original, unpublished works in English up to 10 pages. We are looking for captivating rhythm and form, along with hard-hitting themes of culture, resilience, passion, and justice. Poets are encouraged to deviate from predictable patterns of rhyme and to explore free verse and playfulness with language. Entry fee is $5.99. Deadline extended to May 31st.

Submission Period
February 1, 2024 - May 31, 2024
