Neologism Poetry Journal

Just make something up. We'll be the only ones who know.

Issue #3 posted and Autumn Poetry Contest news

Congratulations to featured poet Honor Vincent and everyone else chosen for the new issue!

I’d also like to note that the Autumn Poetry Contest did not receive 10 entries and will close, but be replaced by the Spring Poetry Contest. I’ve received two thirds of the entries in the past month, so I’m thinking that the longer-running this Journal, the more comfortable people will be submitting. At the end of the day, though, it’s now a $500 prize…so send me your best to win half a grand!

First contest entry!

Looks like I spoke too soon about the Autumn Poetry Contest! Entries are starting to come in. Have a look at the submission guidelines and send in your best work for a shot at the $250 prize!

Issue #2 posted!

Head over to read some new great work! Fewer submissions this month than last, but hopefully things pick up again for August.

I’m also noticing that nobody has submitted to the $250 poetry contest, and I suspect this is due to either lack of knowledge of the contest or a feeling that the $6 entry fee is too high. As I am currently running the Journal out of my own pocket, I had hoped that entry fees would cover the cost of the prize. If I do not receive more than 10 entries to the contest, it will be cancelled with all entry fees refunded, and the next contest will be held when I’ve saved enough to offer something more substantial.

Issue #1 posted!

Thanks to everyone who submitted, and congratulations to all those accepted! I’m looking forward to publishing more great work next month!

Keep ’em coming!

Getting a lot of great submissions for the June issue!  Planning to make final decisions for this month and send out acceptances on June 21st.

As the reader base expands, I hope to offer larger prizes as well as runners-up prizes.


Hello all!

Today is the first day Neologism is open for submissions.  I’m hoping to have enough to publish the first issue by the end of June, but that’s going to take some legwork on my part and yours in getting the word out.   Looking forward to reading your best!
