Alligator Juniper Literary Magazine

An award-winning national literary magazine published by Prescott College since 1995

 

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.

What's in a Name?

The Alligator Juniper tree is in the juniper family with bark in a checkered pattern, resembling an alligator's skin. While the tree is native to the southwest, the alligator is native to swampland and tropics. This pairing in our name invites both the regional and the exotic. And just as artistic ventures challenge commonly-held definitions, so our name blurs the line between the thing and its associations.
