The Marsh Hawk Press Poetry Prize Awards are open until April 30, 2018.
The winner will receive $1000, book publication, and promotion, including a book launch in New York City. Winners of the Robert Creeley and Rochelle Ratner prizes, selected from contest finalists, receive $250.00 each.
Submit 48-80 pages of poetry. Individual poems from the manuscript may have been previously published in magazines, anthologies, or chapbooks of less than 25 pages, but the collection, as a whole, must be unpublished.
Entry Fee: $25
Manuscripts are screened anonymously. During the screening process, every manuscript is read by a minimum of two Marsh Hawk Press editors. Submissions are winnowed to a group of finalists from which the Contest Judge, Jane Hirshfield, chooses a winner.
