Upcoming Poetry Contest – Poetry Book Contest

This contest is open to writers worldwide who have either never published a full-length book of poetry, or who have published only one full-length book of poetry, so that the winning book would become a poet’s first or second published full-length book of poetry. Writers who have published two or more full-length books of poetry are NOT eligible. (Chapbooks do not count and non-poetry books do not count.) We recommend submissions should be 40–120 pages of poetry, not including front and back matter. Colleagues, students, and close friends of the judge, Kazim Ali, are not eligible.
