Four prizes of $1,000 each and publication by the Poetry Society of America are given annually for poetry chapbooks by poets who have not published a full-length collection. Two fellowships are open to poets 30 or younger living in any of the five boroughs of New York City, and two of the fellowships are open to poets of any age living anywhere in the United States. Marilyn Hacker and Jean Valentine will judge the New York City competition, and Elizabeth Alexander and Forrest Gander will judge the national competition. Submit a manuscript of 20 to 30 pages with a $12 entry fee by December 21. Send an SASE or visit the website for complete guidelines.
