2012 FIELD Poetry Prize - deadline May 31

John Marshall of Open Books won this prize for his collection Meaning a Cloud in 2007...

The contest is open to all poets, whether or not they have previously published in book form. Unpublished poetry manuscripts between 50 and 80 pages in length will be considered. Oberlin College Press publishes the winning manuscript in the FIELD Poetry Series and awards the winning author $1,000 plus standard royalties.

Manuscripts must be submitted during May 2012. The contest reading fee is $28 and includes one year’s subscription to FIELD. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, through our online Submissions Manager (note: the submission pathway will appear there on May 1st).

All manuscripts will be judged by the editors, David Young and David Walker. We will announce the winner here in August 2012.
