      -- Pavement Saw Press Transcontinental Award 2011 Submission Guidelines
      ----
      http://www.pavementsaw.org/pages/transaward.htm

      --Starting in 2011 this award will be for first or second full length
      books--

      All contributors receive books, chapbooks and journals equal to, or
      more than, the entry fee.
      Please mention this to your friends and all others who might be
      interested!

      Electronic and mailed entries must meet these requirements:
      1. The manuscript should be at least 48 pages of poetry and no more
      than 70 pages of poetry in length. Separations between sections are NOT
      a part of the page count.
      2. A one page cover letter. Include a brief biography, the book's
      title, your name, address, and telephone number, and, if you have
      e-mail, your e-mail address. This should be followed by a page which
      lists publication acknowledgments for the book. For each
      acknowledgement mention the publisher (journal, anthology, chapbook
      etc.) and the poem published.
      3. The manuscript should be bound with a single clip and begin with a
      title page including the book's title, your name, address, and
      telephone number, and, if you have e-mail, your e-mail address.
      4. The second page should have only the title of the manuscript. There
      are to be no acknowledgments or mention of the author's name from this
      page forward. Submissions to the contest are blind judged.
      5. There should be no more than one poem on each page. The manuscript
      can contain pieces longer than one page.
      6. The manuscript should be paginated, beginning with the first page of
      poetry.

      Each year Pavement Saw Press will publish at least one book of poetry
      and/or prose poems from manuscripts received during this competition.
      Selections are chosen through a blind judging process. The competition
      is open to anyone who has not previously published one, or more than
      one, volume of poetry or prose poetry. The author receives $1000 and
      five percent of the 1000 copy press run. Previous judges have included
      Judith Vollmer, David Bromige, Bin Ramke and Howard McCord. This year
      David Baratier will be the judge; past students, Pavement Saw Press
      interns and employees are not allowed to submit. All poems must be
      original, all prose must be original, fiction or translations are not
      acceptable. All writers without a full length book or those who have
      published only one full length book are eligible. Writers who have had
      a second volume of poetry and/or prose poetry under 40 pages printed or
      printed in limited editions of no more than 500 copies are
      also eligible. Submissions are accepted during the months of June,
      July, and until August 15th. All submissions must have a Monday, August
      15th, 2011, or earlier, postmark. This is an award for first or second
      books only.

      If you wish to send via regular mail your manuscript should be
      accompanied by a check in the amount of $20.00 made payable to Pavement
      Saw Press. All US contributors to the contest will receive books,
      chapbooks and journals equal to, or more than, the entry fee. Add $3
      (US) for other countries to cover the extra postal charge. Do not
      include an SASE for notification of results, this information will be
      sent with the free book. Do not send the only copy of your work. All
      manuscripts are recycled and individual comments on the manuscripts
      cannot be made. Entry Fee: $20 for mailed US and Canadian entries, $23
      for mailed overseas entries, $27 to submit electronically (all entries,
      world wide).

      If you wish to submit electronically, you should send $27.00 via paypal
      to info@.... We will then send you an e-mail confirmation
      as well as where to e-mail the manuscript. Electronic submissions need
      to be sent as PDF files or as word (.doc) files. Other formats are not
      accepted. The extra cost is to cover the paypal fees as well as the
      time, labor, ink, and so on, to print out your manuscript. In addition
      to the prize winner, sometimes another anonymous manuscript is chosen,
      if enough entries arrive. This “editors choice” manuscript will be
      published under a standard royalty contract. A decision will be reached
      in December or January. Entries should be sent to:
