Please review the following guidelines before submitting at
Submit only unpublished poems, 100 lines or less.
Submit each poem as a single document: we intend to judge individual poems, not a body of work.
Do not include any personal information on the poems themselves: the submission manager will track your work and allow us to keep the judging process anonymous. Olivet College faculty will select a short-list for the final judge.
There is a $5.00 per poem entry fee (no limit on the number of entries): we are only accepting online entries and online payments this year. Once you have finished submitting all of your poems, please pay your entry fee through Olivet College’s online payment web site at https://commerce.cashnet.com/olivetstorefront
Poems and entry fees must be submitted on the same day. Poems submitted without entry fees will be deleted from the submission manager unread.
The winner (and honorable mentions) will be announced at a public reading by our judge at Olivet College on Thursday, November 15. Additional information is available at http://garfieldlakereview.submittable.com/submit
