There are no restrictions on style or subject. Only original poetry
written by a single person is eligible. The poems may be related but
need not be centered on a character, theme or narrative. Send 2 copies
of a 14-16 page manuscript.
Each submission is read and initially rated by two editors and
semi-finalists are read by all editors. For editors’ bios, see the
