YellowJacket Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

YellowJacket Press announces the 2018 Peter Meinke Prize for a poetry chapbook and expands the Florida contest to a national competition.


Poetry manuscripts should include 18-20 pages of poetry, title page, table of contents, and acknowledgments and be no longer than 24 pages total. Your name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript.

We are a small, volunteer staff and thus must limit the amount of submissions we can consider. Submissions are open between June 15 and June 30 midnight or until we reach 200 submissions. All submissions are through Submittable. Mailed and emailed submissions will not be considered. Members of the YJP Advisory Board will judge the manuscripts anonymously.
