The submission period for the 6th Annual Jack Grapes Poetry Prize ended on August 31, and we have had a record number of submissions — over 1,200!
Thank you to all the poets who entered, and to our extraordinary and generous judges, F. Douglas Brown, Rocío Carlos, and Alexis Rhone Fancher, who will now begin to read all of the submissions. All submissions are being read anonymously, with all information identifying the poet masked from the judges.

Thank you also to all of our contributors, readers, and supporters, who continue to make this work possible.
Now, please be patient with us as we read through all the submissions!our judges
