Poetry & Artwork
Twyckenham Notes publishes poetry and artwork three times a year (March, July, and November). We pay $25 for accepted pieces and nominate for all major awards. Submissions are always open. The best way to see what kind of work we like is to familiarize yourself by reading some of our past issues. Accepted poets are encouraged to send an audio recording of their poem(s) and may be invited to readings in South Bend.
Joe Bolton Poetry Award
The Joe Bolton Poetry Award is an annual contest that grants $1000 and publication in the Winter issue of Twyckenham Notes to a single poem or small group of poems. The contest is named after the late poet. There is an entrance fee.
42 Miles Press Poetry Award
The prize is offered annually to any poet writing in English, including poets who have never published a full-length book as well as poets who have published several. New and Selected collections of poems are also welcome. The winning poet will receive $1,000, publication of his or her book, and 50 author copies. The winner will also be invited to give a reading at Indiana University South Bend as part of the release of the book.
The Series Editor is poet and artist David Dodd Lee.
Featured Artist Series
Twyckenham Notes features work by select artists in an online gallery format several times a year. There is no submission fee. Featured Artists are promoted on the front page of the website and archived online. While we tend to focus on visual artists, we have featured work by poets before, and we are open to reviewing art in any medium or form for possible features. Be bold.
You can view past Featured Artists here. Full submission details can be found on Submittable.
