      IMPORTANT: Unfortunately, due to recent problems with misinformed
      entrants and withdrawals, we ask that you include the following
      statement in your signed cover letter: “My work may be considered for
      publication, even if it doesn’t win the contest. This signed statement
      constitutes permission for publication if it is selected.”

      Back issues are available for all but 1995 (the premier issue), 2001,
      and 2007. Send $10 to above address and request a copy from any year,
      1996–2000, 2002–2006, or 2008–2011.

      All entries are read and discussed by Prescott College students in the
      Alligator Juniper practicum class. This class is overseen each fall by
      two faculty members, both of whom are published writers, one a poet and
      one a prose writer.

      All entrants receive a personal letter from one of our staff regarding
      the status of their submission. We usually inform in late January. The
      individual attention we devote to each manuscript takes time. We
      appreciate your patience.
    Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
