      “Discovery”/Boston Review 2010
      The Joan Leiman Jacobson Poetry Prizes
      http://www.92y.org/content/pdf/Guidelines.pdf


      Now in its fifth decade, the “Discovery” Poetry Contest, formerly “Discovery”/The Nation, is designed to attract
      large audiences to poets who have not yet published a book. For the third year, the 92nd Street Y Unterberg
      Poetry Center is proud to partner with Boston Review. Four winners are awarded a reading at the Poetry Center
      (set for Monday, May 10, 2010, at 8:15 pm), publication in Boston Review and $500 each.


      Timothy Donnelly, poetry editor at Boston Review, coordinates the contest, and three leading poets are invited to
      judge. Nick Flynn, Susan Howe and Claudia Rankine will judge in 2010. Many winners of this contest have gone
      on to distinguished careers as poets, among them Marilyn Hacker, Katha Pollitt, Mary Jo Salter and Mark Strand.


      Guidelines:


      1. The contest is open to poets who have not published a book of poems (chapbooks and self-published books
      included). Those who have a book contract at the time of submission or who are subsequently awarded a book
      contract are not eligible for the contest if their book is scheduled for publication before fall 2010. Individual
      poems that have been or will be published in periodicals or anthologies may be submitted; however, at least two
      of the submitted poems must be unpublished and under two pages in length.


      2. Submit four identical sets of a typed ten-page manuscript. Each set is to contain the same ten pages in the
      same order. Include no more than one poem per page. NO personal identification should appear on any of the
      poems; no copyright attributions for previously published poems should appear on the poems.


      3. Photocopied manuscripts are acceptable. However, in the case of previously published poems, do not send
      photocopied pages of the periodical or book in which the poem(s) originally appeared.


      4. Please staple each manuscript; do not use paper clips.


      5. Enclose ONE cover letter including your name, address and day and evening telephone numbers, as well
      as a list of the submitted poems in the order in which they appear, with copyright attributions for published
      poems. Do not attach this cover letter to the manuscripts.


      6. An entry fee of $10.00 must accompany the submission. Please make checks (drawn on U.S. banks only) or
      money orders (in U.S. currency only) payable to the 92nd Street Y, and attach them to your cover letter. DO
      NOT SEND CASH.


      7. All poems must be original and in English (no translations).


      8. No contestant may submit more than one entry. No corrections can be accepted after receipt of the contest
      submission.


      9. Entries must be received by Friday, January 15, 2010. If you wish to receive confirmation of receipt of
      your manuscript, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed postcard (not envelope) and allow several weeks for
      its return. Due to the large number of submission received, manuscripts cannot be returned. Winners will be
      contacted by telephone in early March 2010; all contest entrants will be mailed the names of the winners
      shortly thereafter.


      10. No phone queries can be taken, either to inquire about contest guidelines, the status of your entry or to
      request the names of winners. If you wish to hear a recording of the guidelines, or to receive another set of
      these guidelines in the mail, call 212.415.5759. These guidelines are also available at: www.92Y.org/Poetry.
