      The Morton Marr Poetry Prize is an endowment by Marilyn Klepak of
      Dallas in honor of her father, whose love of poetry has encouraged her
      to pass this love on to others. The first prize is $1,000 and the
      second place prize is $500. Both prizes earn publication in Southwest
      Review pages. Judging for 2010 was Christopher Bakken.

      RULES: This contest is open to writers who have not yet published a
      first book of poetry. Contestants may submit no more than six,
      previously unpublished poems in a "traditional" form (e.g. sonnet,
      sestina, villanelle, rhymed stanzas, blank verse, etc.). Poems should
      be printed blank with name and address information only on a cover
      sheet or letter. (If work is submitted online, please omit the author's
      name from the final "submission content text area"). There is a $5.00
      per poem entry/handling fee. Postmarked deadline for entry is September
      30, 2011. Submissions will not be returned. For notification of winning
      poems, include a SASE. Winners will be announced in December. Entries
      should be addressed to: The Morton Marr Poetry Prize, Southwest
