The Country Dog Review, an online journal of poetry and poetry book reviews, is now accepting submissions for its first annual poetry contest, The Argos Prize, named in honor of Odysseus's faithful dog. This year's contest will be judged by Kate Northrop. The winner receives $500 and publication in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of The Country Dog Review.
The entry fee is $10 for three poems, and the postmark deadline is April 15. Please include a cover letter with your entry, and remove all identifying information from your manuscript. In the cover letter, please include your name, address, phone number, email address, and bio. Make checks payable to The Country Dog Review.
Submissions must be unpublished. We accept simultaneous submissions, but if a submitted poem is accepted elsewhere for publication, you must let us know immediately. Entry fees cannot be refunded.
