order out to North American Review. If you are outside the US, please
make sure your entry fee is in US currency and routed through a US bank.
Two copies of up to five previously unpublished poems. No names on

be "read blind." Include required cover sheet (see:
<http://webdelsol.com/NorthAmReview/NAR>). Simultaneous submission to
other journals or competitions is not allowed. Poems will not be
returned, so please do not send an SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope).
To receive acknowledgment of receipt, please include a self-addressed
stamped postcard. If you wish to receive the list of winners, please
enclose a business-size SASE. If you would prefer to receive
acknowledgment of receipt and the list of winners by e-mail, please let

Tips: We have noticed that long poems rarely do well-too much can go
wrong in a large space. Poems that have reached the finalist stage in
our competition in the past are typically one to two pages. Winning
poems always balance interesting subject matter and consummate poetic
craft. We value both free verse and formal poems in rhyme and meter-both
open and closed forms.
