How Do I Get a Copy?

Note: You might have noticed that the website is entitled Mock Turtle Zine even though our email address is listed as Mock Turtle Press. We registered the email address many moons ago, and later discovered that another Mock Turtle Press exists already. To avoid infringement, we had to adjust the name when we went official. Alas, we can’t change the email without canceling the existing account, which involves a whole lot of headache, so please do not judge us too harshly for being “press” in email and “zine” the rest of the time. We’re still just Mock Turtle. Promise.

  1. Hello,

    I submitted a poem to the Dayton Metro Library back in April for a poetry contest. Within the contents of the contest rules it stated that the winners would be published in Mock Turtle Zine. It’s been approximately two months since the entry, and I’ve visited the Mock Turtle Zine website, and haven’t seen anything referencing the 2019 Poetry Contest. Are the judges still evaluating the poem entries, or am I missing something on your website? Not a big deal if I didn’t win anything, but I would like to know what happened to the poem I wrote. That is my own personal work, and I would like to know what was done with it. I would really appreciate a response at your earliest convenience.

  2. Dear Sir or Madam: Please be advised that my poem “Exegesis on Genesis,” submitted on 2/28/19 along with two other poems, has been taken. The other two poems are still available.

    Thank you, Anna Cates
