Alice James Books is a nonprofit cooperative poetry press, founded in 1973. One of the few presses in the country run collectively, we are committed to publishing a diversity of poets, including both beginning and established poets, and a diversity of poetic styles.
We have two annual manuscript contests: The Kinereth Gensler Awards (a regional award for residents of New England, New Jersey, and New York State), postmark deadline October 1st, notification of winners in December. The Beatrice Hawley Award (a national award), postmark deadline December 1st, notification of winners in mid-to-late March.
We also accept submissions to the AJB Translation Series from September through March. Hardcopy and electronic submissions (via Submittable) accepted for all contests.
