Selection Process

Ethics Statement

We endorse and agree to comply with the following statement released by the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses:

CLMP’s community of independent literary publishers believes that ethical contests serve our shared goal: to connect writers and readers by publishing exceptional writing. We believe that intent to act ethically, clarity of guidelines, and transparency of process form the foundation of an ethical contest. To that end, we agree to:

  1. conduct our contests as ethically as possible and to address any unethical behavior on the part of our readers, judges, or editors;
  2. provide clear and specific contest guidelines – defining conflict of interest for all parties involved; and
  3. make the mechanics of our selection process available to the public.

This Code recognizes that different contest models produce different results, but that each model can be run ethically. We have adopted this Code to reinforce our integrity and dedication as a publishing community and to ensure our contests contribute to a vibrant literary heritage.
