                  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                  All unpublished, original collections of poems written in English by United States citizens and permanent residents are eligible* (individual poems may have been previously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.

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.

                          Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for notification of contest results. If you would like confirmation that the manuscript has been received, please include a self-addressed, stamped postcard as well.



                          INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE SUBMISSIONS: Online entries should be sent through Submittable (there is an additional $3.00 processing fee for online entries, making the entry fee for each online entry $28.00). Payment for online submissions must be made online.

                          Please submit your file in .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .pdf, .odt, or .wpf. 12-point font, Times New Roman or Times preferred. Manuscripts should be single-spaced. Include a Table of Contents. No more than one poem should appear on a page.

                          Submit a single title page with only the manuscript title in your file.

                          In the place of the cover letter or biographical note in the submission process, an acknowledgments page listing poems previously published in magazines, journals, or anthologies can be included, but this SHOULD NOT be included in the manuscript file.

                          Please name your file the first eight letters of your manuscript title, with no spaces; for example, if your manuscript was titled "A Collection of Poems," your file would be titled "acollect" or "ACOLLECT" (either lower or upper case is fine). If your manuscript title has fewer than eight letters or uses numerals, use what you have. If you have a symbol or mark of punctuation as your title or as part of your title, spell out what it stands for and use the first eight letters of that; for example, if your manuscript was titled "Poems!," your file would be titled "poemsexc" for "Poems exclamation point."

                          All entrants submitting online through Submittable will be notified of the results via e-mail by May 1, 2013. Link:

                            INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE SUBMISSIONS: Online entries should be sent through
                            Submittable (there is an additional $3.00 processing fee for online entries,
                            making the entry fee for each online entry $28.00). Payment for online
                            submissions must be made online.

                            Please submit your file in .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .pdf, .odt, or .wpf.
                            12-point font, Times New Roman or Times preferred. Manuscripts should be
                            single-spaced. Include a Table of Contents. No more than one poem should appear
                            on a page.

                            Submit a single title page with only the manuscript title in your file.

                            The author's name should appear nowhere in your file or in the file name.

                            In the place of the cover letter or biographical note in the submission process,
                            an acknowledgments page listing poems previously published in magazines,
                            journals, or anthologies can be included, but this SHOULD NOT be included in the
                            manuscript file.

                            Please name your file the first eight letters of your manuscript title, with no
                            spaces; for example, if your manuscript was titled "A Collection of Poems," your
                            file would be titled "acollect" or "ACOLLECT" (either lower or upper case is
                            fine). If your manuscript title has fewer than eight letters or uses numerals,
                            use what you have. If you have a symbol or mark of punctuation as your title or
                            as part of your title, spell out what it stands for and use the first eight
                            letters of that; for example, if your manuscript was titled "Poems!," your file
                            would be titled "poemsexc" for "Poems exclamation point."

                            All entrants submitting online through Submittable will be notified of the
                            results via e-mail by May 1, 2013.
