So to Speak, a feminist journal of art and language, is holding its annual poetry contest. The winner receives $300 and publication in the fall/winter 2000 issue.

The contest is open to everyone, and a $10 submission fee applies for up to five poems. Only previously unpublished work is accepted, and all submissions must be postmarked by Oct. 16.

Judy Grahn, faculty member and codirector of the Women’s Spirituality M.A. program at the New College of California, is the judge for the contest. Grahn is internationally known as a poet, cultural theorist, and lesbian-feminist. She has three collections of poetry in print: The Work of a Common Woman, The Queen of Swords, and The Queen of Wands.

Send submissions to So to Speak, Poetry Contest, MS 2D6. Send two copies of each poem–one without a name, and one with all of the contact information. For more information, contact Kaia Sand at
