      2009 Barnard Women Poets Prize
      http://www.barnard.columbia.edu/english/wpprize.html

      The Barnard Women Poets Prize is given every other year for an exceptional second
      collection of poems written by an American woman who has already published one book of
      poetry (in an edition of 500 copies or more). The winner will receive an honorarium of
      $1,500 and publication of her manuscript by W.W. Norton & Co.

      The next prize will be awarded in the spring of 2009. Submissions for the 2009 Prize will
      be accepted in the summer and early fall of 2008. A qualified applicant should submit
      three copies of her book-length manuscript with a cover letter naming the title and
      publisher of her first collection. Although a writer may submit a manuscript that has been
      entered in other contests, any manuscript under option to another publisher is not
      eligible. (Please note that any entries that are encumbered will be disqualified.) Page-limit
      is not specified. Because the prize is given to a poet who has already published a first
      book, the manuscripts are not read anonymously. Every qualified manuscript will be read
      with care by the panel of judges and the chief judge, who changes every year.

      The entry fee is $20, payable in check to Women Poets at Barnard. Submissions will be
      accepted between August 1, 2008 and October 15, 2008. (Please note that submissions
      received before August 1, 2008, will not be accepted.) Winners will be contacted directly
      in the spring of 2009.

      Please send manuscripts and fees to Women Poets at Barnard, Barnard College, 3009
      Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Email questions to Saskia Hamilton at
      <shamilton(at)barnard.edu>. (Replace (at) with @)
