Deadline Approaches for the Red Hen Press Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award

There are two days remaining to submit to the Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award. Administered by Red Hen Press, the prize offers $3,000 and publication for an original collection of poetry. The contest boasts few limiting guidelines and only prohibits entries from writers who are already connected to Red Hen Press or the contest judge.

Using only the online submission system, submit a manuscript of 48 to 96 pages with a $25 entry fee by October 31. Major Jackson will judge. Visit the website for complete guidelines.

In addition to the Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award, the press offers several other awards, including a biennial novella prize and a biennial prize for prose by women writers. Anna V. Q. Ross won the 2020 Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award for her collection Milk Teeth, which is due out next year.
