What we are looking for:
White Stag Publishing has a uniquely distinct taste for dark comedy, phantasmagoric imagery, complete dishonesty, & love poems that are to die for (& yes, pun is intended & strongly encouraged). We strive to publish only the deepest emotion, the rawest of images, & the most unique language & syntax. We want work that takes us into a whole new [sur]reality, voices so strong they're engrained in us, perspectives from various types of people & walks of life. There is no theme for the contest, but please review our previous themes/issues of White Stag Journal to get a sense of what we like to publish. We do not tolerate any racism, sexism, womanizing, homophobia, or animal cruelty so please don't send us any!
Winners will be announced in the summer of 2017 with publication releases at the end of 2017/beginning of 2018.
There is a submission fee of $15, but you may submit up to two full length collections in one submission. Please separate each manuscript with a blank page in the document & note both titles in your cover letter.
