For 30 years, the Comstock Review has been publishing and has awarding more than $30,000 in our contest prizes. An independent journal with an all-volunteer staff of poets who love the craft and those who write in the genre, CR has featured many MA poets throughout the years.

Popoff, CR senior editor
