      Stephen F. Austin Stat e University Press invites submissions of manuscripts
      each year for its Poetry series. We are committ ed to publishing
      diverse kinds of poetry. The only criterion is excellence.
      SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY):
      The series is open to all book-length manuscripts by a single author of at
      least 60 pages. Poems previously published in periodicals or anthologies are
      eligible for inclusion.
      The editor requests that faculty, staff, and current or former students refrain
      from submitting to the series.
      Submissions will be accepted from January 1 through March 31, 2010.
      Please do not send revisions once you have sent a manuscript. Up to four
      manuscripts will be chosen by the following July 31, one of which will win
      the 1000 dollar prize.
      Manuscripts should be typed or machine-printed, double-spaced. Xeroxed
      copies are acceptable. Please do not bind manuscripts with anything other
      than a binder clip or rubber band. No electronic submissions will be
      considered.
      There is a reading fee of $25 payable by check or money order to Stephen
      F. Austin State University Press. Please do not send cash.
      Simultaneously submitted manuscripts are allowed provided we are notified
      immediately of acceptance elsewhere.
      All entries will be judged anonymously. Please enclose two title pages with
      your submission: one page should include only the title of the manuscript
      and the other should list the title of the manuscript and the author's name,
      address, telephone number, e-mail address, and a brief, biographical
      statement. The author's name must not appear anywhere else in the manuscript.
      If you wish to be notified that your manuscript was received, please include
      an SAS postcard—small index cards will not be accepted by the post-office.
      If you submit a #10 SASE along with your manuscript, you will be notified
      of our decisions by July 31. Otherwise, check our Web site in mid-August,
      where the winners will be announced.
      Manuscripts will be recycled rather than returned.
      Send your manuscript and reading fee to
