Entry Fees



$100 & publication


Contest Description:

We love work that is linguistically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding of the reader. We want literary works that grow in complexity upon each visitation. Writers we admire are Zadie Smith, Virginia Woolf, Tom Wolfe, Charles Dickens, Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Tom Stoppard, Vladimir Nabokov and James Baldwin.


-Both previously published and unpublished works are eligible, provided that publication on the Lazuli Literary Group website does not infringe on previously held rights.

-We are not concerned with genre distinctions—send us the best you have; we want only for it to be thoughtful, intelligent, and beautiful.

-A cover letter is not required and will not affect the success of your submission. ​

-You may submit multiple pieces as long as each is accompanied by a separate entry fee. Multiple poems, not exceeding 50 pages in total, are considered one submission.
