Poetry book contest: Augury Books

New press in New York that looks pretty cool:

We at Augury Books are delighted to announce that our Editors' Prize in Poetry will be open for submissions between May 1st–July 31st, 2012. Augury Books is an independent press based in New York City. Committed to publishing innovative work from emerging and established writers, Augury Books seeks to reaffirm the diversity of the reading public. The editorial board is dedicated to fairness and quality of work. With this in mind, Augury Books refuses to accept contest submissions from writers who are personally acquainted with the press or the judge. Authors who do have personal connections of this nature are asked to send a query letter for general publication instead.
