Ever wonder what it’s like to judge a creative writing competition? Well,
now’s your chance!
We’re proud to announce the Palooka People’s Choice Award, a whole new
literary award experience. This is how it works: We select 5 finalists,
then YOU select the winner.
The five finalists will be named and their works will be uploaded onto the
Palooka website by the end of the summer. Then all you underdogs out there
will be able to read the entries and vote for your favorite. The winner
will be published in our debut Winter Issue.
We will alternate between poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for each issue’s
People’s Choice Award. For this round, we–or rather, you–will be
considering poetry. Every poetry submission we receive will be considered
for this award with NO ADDITIONAL CONTEST FEE.
So stay tuned and as soon as we round up five poems we find utterly
outstanding, we’ll hand them over to you for the final reading round.
Thank you, Palooka People, for your continued support and encouragement.
