                  Frequently Asked Questions:


                  Does the poet retain full rights?
                  The poet retains full rights, but there must be an acknowledgement or citation of the book at each subsequent printing or printed use.



                  Will Bellday publish submitted poetry in any instance but the winner?
                  Bellday may (or may not) approach poets who submitted other manuscripts and negotiate for publication of their manuscripts.



                  What will be done with rejected manuscripts?
                  Manuscript paper will be recycled, as with virtually all other competitions.



                  Would you consider a manuscript co-authored by two poets?
                  We will accept a manuscript in which two poets wrote the poems together. If it's merely two poets putting a book out together, the manuscript is not eligible for the award.



                  Is it okay if some of the poems were already published in a chapbook?
                  As long as they are not the only poems in the book. The book can not just be a reprint of a chapbook.



                  Is the contest only open to U.S. citizens?
                  The only stipulation is that the poetry be in English. Anyone can enter.



                  Who are the prescreening judges?
                  There will be 5-8 preliminary screeners from around the country, all of whom are writers, students or otherwise involved with literature.



                  Is it a one-time or ongoing award?
                  It is an annual award.



                  What kind of poetry do you want?
                  Good poetry of any style on any subject will be considered. Linda Gregerson will
                  make the final selection.



                  Are you posting an announcement anywhere?
                  We are posting announcements in the January-February issues of both Poets & Writers and American Poetry Review.



                  When do you plan to announce winners?
                  We hope to announce the winner by July 14, 2009.
