Finalists will have access to a link where you must submit a 20-poem manuscript by 11:59 PM PST on June 17. (The five poems you submitted for round one can be included in this.) This will give us a better idea of what your full-length manuscript of 40-50 poems will be like.​

June 17: 20-poem manuscript due.

Video: Along with your manuscript, finalists must submit a video of themselves performing one of the poems from your 20-poem manuscript sample. Upload to youtube and send in email to us. (Full manuscript is 40-50 poems, not due at this time.) 

Please upload this video directly to YouTube and include the link in your submission. Title the video "Write Bloody 2024 Contest (insert your name)".

This video can be creative or simple. It can be done professionally or on your cell phone. It can be filmed at a reading or in your living room. Our goal is to hear and see how you read and perform your work out loud. *Please make sure the audio quality is good enough so we can hear you clearly.*

July 15th: By this date, all finalists will have received an email letting them know if they have been selected to publish a full-length collection with Write Bloody Publishing in 2024!​

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
