poetry contest: Jane's Stories
Jane's Stories Press Foundation announces its 2010 Poetry Contest, "Beyond Borders." Results of the 2010 Jane's Stories Poetry Awards for previously unpublished poems written in English by women will be announced in April, 2010.
The Jane's Stories Poetry Award from Jane's Stories Press Foundation will be awarded to the best poem submitted and received by March 1, 2010. Previously unpublished poems of any length or style written in English by women are eligible. Entries should speak to the contest theme, "Beyond Borders." The Foundation has a special interest in work by and about women, and is seeking writing which addresses resolving conflicts and boundary issues.
A First Prize of $100 will be awarded. A Second Prize of $50 and two Third Prizes of $25 each will also be awarded. All winning poems and authors will be featured on our we site, wwwjanesstories.org. Authors also grant JSPF reprint rights to publish winning entries in its next anthology.
An entry fee of $10 for 3 poems must accompany each submission. Include $3 for each additional poem submitted beyond the first 3, up to a limit of 5 poems. Enclose an SASE for notification and a list of the winners or request email notification to a valid email address. All entries will be recycled rather than returned. Submissions accepted October 1, 2009 through March 1, 2010.
IMPORTANT: Enclose a separate sheet including your name, address, email address, and phone number and a list of the poems submitted. Do not put your name on the poem itself. The title of each poem should appear at the top of the page. Entries without SASEs or valid email addresses will not be considered. Entries that arrive after March 1, 2010, will be discarded.
