About the contest
Troublemaker Firestarter is a biannual poetry chapbook specializing in LGBT+ and feminist topics.
Our mission is to excite poetry lovers. We welcome the uncomfortable and controversial. New, bold, and proud poets should find their home here.
Potential poems should be weird and uncomfortable. Don’t worry if you think you won’t fit. Submit anyway! This volume will be in print like Volume One and available on our website when printed.
How to enter the contest
- Submit up to five pages in one document.
- Please bold the titles of your poems.
- For your cover letter, in 3-6 sentences, say who you are and if you’ve been published and where before or your website if you have one.
- We do not accept multiple submissions from the same poet.
- Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. If this is the case, please ensure to withdraw your submission from Oleada.
- The poems will be published in print. Maybe online eventually? We will submit a select few for the following Pushcart Prize.
