About the competition
Raleigh Review is a nonprofit magazine of poetry, short fiction, and art that offers accessible works of experience that are both emotionally and intellectually complex. At Raleigh Review we believe that great literature inspires empathy by allowing us to see the world through the eyes of our neighbors, whether across the street or across the globe. Our mission is to foster the creation and availability of accessible yet provocative contemporary literature through our biannual magazine as well as through workshops, readings, and other community events.
- Send four to five poems.
- If you think your poems will make a perfect stranger’s toes tingle, heart leap, or brain sizzle, then send it our way. We typically do not publish avant-garde or language poetry and have a general aversion to unnecessarily exclusive work. We do like a poem that causes–for a wide audience–a visceral reaction to intellectually and emotionally rich material.
- If accepted, we will also request an audio recording, which is optional but highly encouraged.
