      Juniper Prize for Poetry
      http://www.umass.edu/umpress/juniper.html

      The Juniper Prize for Poetry is awarded annually for an original manuscript
      of poems. In alternating years, the program is open to poets either with or
      without previously published books. The University of Massachusetts Press
      publishes the winning manuscript, and the author receives a $1,500 award upon
      publication.
      2007-2008 Submissions: In 2007, we will consider only manuscripts by writers
      whose poems may have appeared in literary journals and/or anthologies, but
      have not been published or accepted for publication in book form (with the
      exception of chapbooks under 45 pages in length). All manuscripts will be judged
      anonymously. Submissions will be accepted between August 1 and September 29,
      2007. The award winner will be announced at our website in April 2008, and
      publication scheduled for Spring 2009.
      Guidelines
      1. Manuscripts must be paginated and be between 50 and 70 pages in
      typescript.
      2. Each submission should have two cover pages—one listing the title of the
      manuscript and the author's name, address, phone number, and email address; and
      a second page listing only the title. The author's name should not appear
      after the first cover page.
      3. Include the following along with your manuscript:
      a. Paginated contents page.
      b. List of acknowledgments for poems in the manuscript that have been
      published or are slated for publication in literary journals and/or anthologies.
      c. The following information about any previously published books: title,
      page count, publisher, and year of publication.
      d. Payment of a $20.00 non-refundable entry fee (check or money order payable
      in U.S. dollars to Juniper Prize, University of Massachusetts Press).
      e. Manuscripts will not be returned. If you wish, you may also include a
      self-addressed, stamped post card for confirmation of receipt.
      Dates for submission
      1. All manuscripts must be submitted between August 1 and September 29 with a
      postmark no later than September 29.
      2. Send submissions to:
      Juniper Prize for Poetry
      University of Massachusetts Press
      East Experiment Station, 671 N. Pleasant Street
      Amherst, MA 01003
      3. The Press assumes no responsibility for lost or damaged manuscripts, and
      we suggest that you retain a copy for your protection.
      4. The winner will be notified in April 2008. No information about the winner
      will be released before the April announcement, and the Press will not be
      able to provide feedback on manuscripts submitted for competition.
      Ineligible Submissions
      1. Manuscripts by more than one author.
      2. Entries of more than one manuscript within the same year.
      3. Translations.
      4. Manuscripts from employees and students of the University of
      Massachusetts, and former Juniper Prize winners.  
      Multiple Submissions
      You may submit your manuscript to other publishers while it is being
      considered for this competition, but if it is accepted for publication elsewhere,
      please notify us immediately.
