When: Mondays. Continues through May 15 2009
All U.S. poets are eligible, there is no restriction on content, style, or subject and the 2009 judge is Carolyne Wright. Entries must be postmarked by May, 15 2009 and the winners will be announced August 15. Winning entry receives a $1,000 cash prize, plus publication by Lost Horse Press. Send manuscripts of 48 or more pages of poetry, no more than one poem per page, no smaller than 12 point type in an easily readable font. Poems may have appeared in journals and chapbooks, but not in full-length, single-author collections. Entries must include name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and title of poetry collection must appear on the cover letter only. The goal is “blind” judging. Author’s name should not appear anywhere in manuscript except the cover letter.
