THE ANNUAL PUERTO DEL SOL POETRY/PROSE CONTEST
Since 2017, Puerto del Sol has published one work of prose and one poem as winners of our annual contest. These contest winners are selected with the help of well-known writers, serving as final judges. Our contest begins January 1 and ends on April 1, with decisions made sometime in May.
We are now open for submissions to our 2020 Contest. Our judges this year are Rodney Gomez (Poetry) and Vi Khi Nao (Prose). For full details or to submit, please use our Submittable submission manager.
