Notes from The Ledge


We'd like to wish all of our readers a happy and healthy summer season! We are now in the process of reading entries for The Ledge 2014 Fiction Awards and expect to be announcing those results in late summer.

Please note that effective May 1, 2014 The Ledge is no longer accepting submissions or contest entries .


As copies of The Traffic of Our Lives by Jonathan Harrington are being prepared for delivery to the 2012 poetry chapbook entrants, we continue to judge the 2013 chapbook competition, and we expect to be announcing the winner of that chapbook award in late April or early May.

We are also accepting entries for The Ledge 2014 Poetry Awards Competition, which has a postmark deadline of April 30.

We'd like to thank all of our entrants for their interest in and support of the publication and press.
