A prize of $10,000 and a two-month residency at Lake Forest College is given in alternating years to an emerging poet or prose writer to complete an innovative work-in-progress. This year the residency will be offered to a poet. The winner also receives publication of his or her manuscript by &NOW Books, an imprint of Lake Forest College Press, with distribution by Northwestern University Press. Poets who are under the age of 40 and who have not published a book are eligible. Eleni Siklians will judge. Using the online submission system, submit up to 30 pages of poetry, a project statement, and a curriculum vitae. The deadline is March 1; only the first 200 entries will be considered. There is no entry fee. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
