The Georgia Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Georgia Review is pleased to announce the sixth annual Loraine Williams Poetry Prize. The winner will receive $1,000 and publication in our Spring 2019 issue for a single poem, never before published either in print or online.

The submission period runs April 1, 2018 through May 15, 2018, with the winning poem to be announced on August 15, 2018. Natasha Trethewey will serve as final judge.

The Georgia Review thanks the late Loraine Williams for her sponsorship of this prize. Ms. Williams was a longtime Atlanta-based patron of the arts.


Subscribers to The Georgia Review may submit online at no cost; all other online submissions require a $3 processing fee. 

Submissions should be limited to one story, one essay, one review, or three to five poems. All prose manuscripts must be double spaced. Visual art may be uploaded in a single file or in multiples depending on the artist's needs. 

Please title your file with your last name (ex. Smith.docx), and include your name, address, and email address on the first page of your submission.

Work previously published in any form will not be considered. Please let us know in your cover letter if your submission is simultaneously being considered elsewhere, and likewise please notify us if any part of your submission is known to be included in a book already accepted by a publisher (including the anticipated date of book publication). 

If your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know immediately by withdrawing your submission. If you need to withdraw a poem from a poetry submission, please contact us here, selecting "Submissions" in the drop-down menu. 

Thank you for sending us your work!
