      from a previously unpublished American poet (a U.S.
      citizen who has not published a full-length collection
      of poetry before).  We are looking for manuscripts
      that exhibit striking language, memorable imagery,
      intellectual depth, and a respect for diversity in all

      ·    No revisions to submitted manuscripts will be
      considered; the winning manuscript may be revised
