Contest Rules & Submission Guidelines

One winner will be selected in each of the three genres—fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The three winners of  Porter House Review Editor’s Prize will each receive an award of $750 and publication in our literary journal. All submitted works will be considered for publication. Porter House Review is dedicated to paying all of our featured writers a competitive rate for accepted works.
The submission fee for this contest will be $10.00. During the week of December 4th through December 11th, this submission fee will be waived. While we rely in part upon submission fees to pay our contributors, we are also dedicated to offering free submission periods as we recognize these fees may present a hardship to submitters. Whether a submission was received during a paid period or a waiver period will have no bearing on its consideration by our editors and judges.
