The 11th Annual Tupelo Press Award for a First or Second Book of Poetry — now open to those who have previously published one book — is an open competition with a $3,000 prize.
Submissions are accepted from anyone writing in the English language, whether living in the United States or abroad (translations are not eligible for this prize). Final judges will be the editors of Tupelo Press and the journal Crazyhorse. Co-sponsored by the College of Charleston.
Prior winners include Jennifer Michael Hecht, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Bill Van Every, Kristin Bock, and Jennifer Militello. All entries must be postmarked or uploaded to Tupelo Press's online Submission Manager by April 15, 2010.
