      The Akron Series in Poetry has been founded to bring to the public writers
      who speak in original and compelling voices. Each year, The University of Akron
      Press will offer the Akron Poetry Prize, a competition open to all poets
      writing in English. The winning poet will receive $1,000 and publication of his or
      her book. The final selection will be made by a nationally prominent poet. The
      final judge for 2007 is Stephen Dunn. Other manuscripts may also be
      considered for publication in the series.

      Guidelines for Submission
      1. Manuscripts must be typed, preferably double-spaced, and consecutively
      numbered, for a total length between 60 and 100 pages. Clear photocopies are
      acceptable. Please, do not send manuscripts bound or enclosed in covers.
      2. Manuscripts must include a cover page (with author's name, address, phone
      number, and manuscript title), a title page (with no biographical
      information), and an acknowledgements page listing poems previously published in
      periodicals. Please do not submit manuscripts that have the author's name on each page.
      Manuscripts go to the final judge blind.
      3. Manuscripts must be postmarked between May 15 and June 30 of each year.
      Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but The University of Akron Press must
      be notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted elsewhere.
      4. An entry fee of $25 is required for each manuscript submission. Make check
      or money order payable to The University of Akron Press. The cancelled check
      will serve as notification of receipt.
      5. Include with each submission a stamped, self-addressed postcard for
      notification of receipt of manuscript, and a stamped, self-addressed envelope for
      notification of contest results in September. No manuscripts can be returned.
      6. Books accepted for the Akron Series in Poetry must exhibit three essential
      qualities: mastery of language, maturity of feeling, and complexity of
      thought. The University of Akron Press is committed to publishing poetry that, as
      Robert Frost said, "begins in delight and ends in wisdom."
      Send manuscripts to:
      The Akron Poetry Prize
      The University of Akron Press
      Akron, OH 44325-1703
