Carve is pleased to announce the 2019 guest judges for the Prose & Poetry Contest:

  • Lydia Kiesling (Fiction)
  • Benjamin Busch (Nonfiction)
  • Analicia Sotelo (Poetry)


  • No limit to number of entries but each entry requires a separate entry fee and submission. (One story per fiction submission; one essay per nonfiction submission; one poem per poetry submission.)
  • Simultaneous submissions accepted. Please notify us promptly if your piece is accepted elsewhere by withdrawing via Submittable.
  • Please do your best to format prose manuscripts to be double-spaced, with 1" margins. Do not include any author info in the document.
  • Review guidelines at https://www.carvezine.com/prose-poetry-contest if you haven't already.

Note: we cannot do any file swaps for the contest, as it would violate our anonymous reading policy. Once you submit, that's it!
