A few things you may not know--
1) We consider all poems submitted for our contest for publication. Last year, we published about 10-12 poems from finalists and those poems are also considered for yearly Editors' Prize and Pushcart nominations.
2) This contest helps keep our press afloat. I hadn't realized that about contests, but as well as being a way to help promote poets, it's also helps us stay alive in the literary arts.
3) The judge this year is Nancy Pagh (author of No Sweeter Fat) and she's awesome.
So thank you for your support of Crab Creek Review. We so appreciate the support of poets and we hope we can help promote your work as well.
