The 42 Miles Press Poetry Award is open to any poet writing in English, including poets who have never published a full-length book as well as poets who have published several.
They say, 'Manuscripts submitted for the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award should exhibit an awareness of the contemporary “voice” in American poetry, an awareness of our moment in time as poets. We are excited to receive poetry that is experimental as well as work of a more formalist bent, as long as it reflects a complexity and sophistication of thought and language.'
The winner will receive $1,000, publication of his or her book, and 50 author copies. They will also be invited to give a reading at Indiana University South Bend.
Deadline: March 1, 2018
Entry Fee: $25.
Include a cover sheet with your name, address, phone number, and e-mail. The manuscript should be paginated (between 45 and 100 pp.) and include a table of contents and acknowledgments page.
