Event Details

The Diode Editions full-length book contest is now open through October 30, 2023. Winners are to be announced by November 30, 2023. The press may select more than one book. Book contest winners are to receive $1,500.00, 10 author copies, publication by Diode Editions within one year, and publication of select poems from the book in the 17th Anniversary Issue of diode poetry journal.

The contest is open to all poets over the age of 18 who write in English. Diode welcomes collaborations, hybrid work and simultaneous submissions. If your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere, please notify the team as soon as possible.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
