Alligator Juniper Literary Magazine
Alligator Juniper features contemporary poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and black & white photography. We encourage submissions from writers and photographers at all levels, emerging, early-career, and established.
We produce one annual issue comprised of the winners and finalists of our national contests. All entrants pay a $15 submission fee and receive a complementary copy of that year's issue in the spring. First place winning writers in each genre receive a $1000 prize. The first place winner in photography receives a $500 award. Finalists in writing and images are published and paid in contributor copies.
There is currently no avenue for submissions other than this annual contest.
