Please note: our annual Jean Feldman Poetry Prize will be on hiatus until submissions open in September of 2025 for publication in 2026. With the generous support of Dr. Jean Feldman, we will be publishing our 50th-anniversary anthology, AMERICA’S FUTURE, in late 2025.

Every year, Dr. Jean Feldman supports the publication of our poetry manuscript, and in 2022 made a special her donation in memory of Dotti Warren, her life-long, best friend from Briarcliff High School in Atlanta. We are grateful to the generosity and spirit of Dr. Jean Feldman and may this year’s donation be a beautiful memory to a beautiful friendship.
