NB: OUR ALCHEMICAL VALENTINE is suspended until further notice; we are currently focusing on Fathom’s initiatives and securing payment for every contributor to SHARKPACK Annual.

Here’s a new mission for you, poet: become SPR’ALCHEMICAL VALENTINE. All you’ve got to do is write a staggering love (-ish) poem. Maybe you haven’t got the guts. Well?

We’ll be accepting entries from 1/5 – 2/5 of 2017 (open entry time for this year has passed), and announce a winner on—you guessed it—St. Valentine’s Day.

As a result of a vacancy in 2016, the cash prize for 2017 has doubled to $300. The winner also receives feature publication in SPR Annual.

Past winners follow.

2015     Chloe Houser for “At Odds with the Natural World”
2016     Prize vacant
