      2012 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry
      Open Competition Awards
      $3500 and publication
      for two collections of poems
      final judge: Cynthia Huntington

      http://craborchardreview.siuc.edu/conpo.html

      Crab Orchard Review and Southern Illinois University Press are pleased to announce the selections for the 2011 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition Awards. Our final judge, Yusef Komunyakaa, selected Jacob Shores-Arguello's IN THE ABSENCE OF CLOCKS and Wally Swist's HUANG PO AND THE DIMENSIONS OF LOVE as this year's winners. Both collections will be published by Southern Illinois University Press in June 2012 and both authors will be awarded a $2000 prize and $1500 as an honorarium for a reading at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Both readings will follow the publication of the poets' collections by Southern Illinois University Press.



      Below are the guidelines for the 2012 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition:

      All unpublished, original collections of poems written in English by United States citizens and permanent residents are eligible* (individual poems may have been previously published). (*Current or former students, colleagues, and close friends of the final judge, Cynthia Huntington, and current and former students and employees of Southern Illinois University and authors published by Southern Illinois University Press are not eligible for the Open Competition.) For questions about judging, please visit http://www.CrabOrchardReview.siuc.edu/conpo3.html. Two volumes of poems will be selected from an open competition of manuscripts postmarked October 1 through November 16, 2011. The winners will each receive a publication contract with Southern Illinois University Press. In addition, both winners will be awarded a $2000 prize and $1500 as an honorarium for a reading at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Both readings will follow the publication of the poets' collections by Southern Illinois University Press.

      Manuscripts should be typewritten and single-spaced (recommended length: 50 pages minimum to 100 pages maximum; 12 pt. type preferred). No more than one poem should appear on a page. A clean photocopy is recommended. Please do not send your only copy of the manuscript since manuscripts will not be returned, and please do not include illustrations. Crab Orchard Review and Southern Illinois University Press assume no responsibility for damaged or lost manuscripts. All submissions must be accompanied by a $25 entry fee. Please make your check out to "Crab Orchard Series in Poetry." All entrants will receive a one-year subscription to Crab Orchard Review.

      Submit two title pages for the collection. The author's name, address, e-mail, and daytime phone number should appear on the first title page only. The author's name should appear nowhere else in the manuscript. An acknowledgments page listing poems previously published in magazines, journals, or anthologies should be placed after the second title page. All identifying materials will be removed before screening and the final judge sees only the first title page, table of contents, and text.

      ALL ENTRIES MUST BE POSTMARKED OCTOBER 1, 2011 through NOVEMBER 16, 2011. (Since this is a postmark deadline, there is no need to send Express Mail, Fedex, or UPS. First Class or Priority Mail are preferred.)

Please do not send your only copy of the manuscript since manuscripts will not be returned, and please do not include illustrations. CRAB ORCHARD REVIEW and Southern Illinois University Press assume no responsibility for damaged or lost manuscripts. 

                All postal submissions must be accompanied by a $25 entry fee (check or money order). Please make your check out to "Crab Orchard Series in Poetry."
