You’re the Best


We communicate through Submittable's messaging feature, so make sure to keep an eye out for any emails from them. Please feel welcome to also contact us at contact (@) at any time.

We have a turnaround of eight to twelve weeks after contest closing, please stay tuned!



In the meantime, check out these great opportunities:

Our Poetry Lab // Democratizing higher learning has always been a deep concern for our team at Frontier—we want to make quality educational opportunities available to folks beyond the traditional MFA space. We're excited to expand our efforts this year into this New Voices Lab format! Being read seriously by admired experts in the community can be such an incredible force for the creative spirit, and we consider it a privilege to be a space where that can happen.

Our Editorial Feedback Option // We will send you two pages of feedback on a poem of your choice, including what we liked and disliked about the work, suggestions for revision, and recommendations for future places of submission. This includes a fee, of which a significant portion goes to the individual editor who writes the feedback.

The Poetry School Discount // As a thank you for your support for Frontier, we've partnered with The Poetry School to offer every submitter a 20% off discount code to one of their online courses! Head to, find a course you're interested in, and use the code included in your confirmation email at checkout. This discount is reserved for our contest submitter. (Please note that the discount does not apply to any one-to-one courses.)
