Should I leave my name off the submission?
That's up to you. It doesn't make any difference to us.
How long does it take to hear back from a regular submission?
We try to keep the response time under one month.
Where do you post contest winners?
You'll be notified one way or another via email; make sure Submittable is on your safe list. Winners and finalists are announced at lascauxreview.com/contest-results and elsewhere.
How long does it take?
That's a little trickier. Since all readers are volunteers, the job gets done when it gets done. Our goal is to wrap things up within three months of the closing date of a contest.
When submitting multiple poems or flash pieces, always present your best stuff first.
Once you submit you will receive instructions on how to download a free digital copy of the most recent Lascaux Prize Anthology.
Fees are dedicated entirely to operating expenses and do not influence editorial decisions. Editors and other staff at The Lascaux Review and its sister sites are unpaid volunteers.
Poems may be previously published or unpublished, and simultaneous submissions are accepted. The winner receives $1,000, the medallion depicted below, and publication in The Lascaux Review. The winner and all finalists will be published in The 2018 Lascaux Prize Anthology.
Two copies of the anthology will be supplied to every poet appearing in it. Entry fee is $10. Poets may enter more than once, and as many as five poems may be submitted per entry (please paste all poems into a single document). There are no length restrictions. All styles are welcome.
All contest participants receive free downloads of the Lascaux Prize anthologies to date. Submissions close 30 September.
Entry fees are dedicated entirely to prize money and operating expenses. Editors, judges, and other staff at The Lascaux Review and its sister sites are unpaid volunteers.
