2010 Bull City Press First Book Prize
Call for Manuscripts
April 1, 2010 - August 1, 2010
The 2010 Bull City Press First Book Prize honors a book of individual poetry in English by a single author; translations and collaborative works are not eligible for this award. The winning poet will receive 50 copies of the published book. A list of the winner and finalists will be listed on the Bull City Press web site.
The 2010 Bull City Press First Book Prize will be judged by an editorial board consisting of executive director Ross White, managing editor Marielle Prince, and Matthew Olzmann.
The winning volume will be published in 2011 by Bull City Press.
The 2010 Bull City Press First Book Prize is open to any poet writing in English who has not previously published a book-length collection of poetry. Simultaneous submissions are permissible, but entrants are asked to notify Bull City Press immediately if a manuscript becomes committed elsewhere.
Please do not submit to this contest if you are close enough to a member of the editorial board that his/her integrity or the integrity of Bull City Press would be called into question should you be selected as the winner. You may query us if you have questions regarding this matter. Please query by email to submissionsbullcitypress.com.
