Deadline: Thursday, October 21st

We received many high quality submissions for the Peter K. Hixson Award (which was open only to poets in July). We were very impressed with the majority of the submissions we received; but, of course, that made our job more difficult when it came time to choose winners! Submissions from all over the globe made a pile over a foot high!

Multiple readers considered each entry that met submission guidelines. Final round judging was blind.

It was truly an honor and a joy to read so much amazing poetry. Although we’d initially said we were choosing two winners, we ended up choosing FOUR poets to win plus two honorable mentions. Here they are!

The winners are listed in alphabetical order:

Lisa Cheby

Christina Kapp

Patricia McMillen

Lauren Yaffe

And our honorable mentions are:

Arthur Powers

Julian de Wette

The Peter K. Hixson scholarship WILL open again to writers in other genres. So if you would like to enter, stay tuned!

P.S. Our Review Board will be opening for regular submissions tomorrow! If you want to get your writing out during the publishing rush that begins in September, apply to join Writer’s Relief ASAP so that we can have your submissions ready on time! Guidelines here.

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer

“Every piece I have sent out with their help has been accepted for publication! I am looking forward to working with the team on getting my new novel out into the world.”
