The Unicorn Press First Poetry Book Contest - Deadline 31 May 2014
The Unicorn Press First Book Contest
From 1 January to 31 May, Unicorn Press will accept submissions of book-length poetry manuscripts by authors who have not previously published a book of poetry. The winner will receive $250 and the winning manuscript will be published by Unicorn Press. We will announce our decision on 1 December. If you wish to submit a manuscript, please proceed under the following guidelines.
» Please submit 56-72 pages of poetry previously uncollected in book form. (For the purpose of this contest, we consider publications with more 32 poems printed in a run of over 1000 copies to be previous publication in book form.) Only one poem should appear per page.
» Manuscripts may contain previously published poetry. If applicable, please include an acknowledgements page detailing previous publications.
» Please include a cover letter containing your contact information, including an email address. Send your manuscript with an SASE we may use to send our response. In the event the manuscript is declined, we will send notice by email if no SASE has been supplied. We will return manuscripts for which an SASE of sufficient size to enclose the work is included in the submission. If you would like to know when your manuscript has arrived, please include a self-addressed postcard with your submission, and we will drop it in the mail upon receipt of your materials.
» Please send submissions by mail only. Manuscripts must be postmarked between 1 January and 31 May, inclusive. Please address your submission as follows:
