      C&R Press (www.crpress.org), a non-profit literary organization, is looking for the best manuscript from a previously unpublished American poet (a U.S. citizen who has not published a full-length collection of poetry before).  We are looking for manuscripts that exhibit striking language, memorable imagery, intellectual depth, and a respect for diversity in all areas of life.

      55-85 page-manuscript (single-spaced)

      one-paragraph biography

      $20 entry fee payable to C&R Press ($25 entry fee receives a copy of winning book)

      SASE for results


      Guidelines:


      Submission of more than one manuscript is acceptable; each manuscript must be submitted separately, each with entry fee and SASE

      Please let us know immediately if your manuscript is accepted by another publisher while under our consideration

      No revisions to submitted manuscripts will be considered; the winning manuscript may be revised before publication

      Manuscripts may consist of poems that have been published, but the manuscript as a whole must not have been previously published

      Close friends, former students, and current or former colleagues of the judge are ineligible

      Translations ineligible
