      Perugia Press Prize
      for a First or Second Book by a Woman
      Prize: $1000 and publication
      http://www.perugiapress.com/contest.html

      Eligibility

      * Poet must have no more than one previously published book.
      Chapbooks and books in other genres do not count.
      * Translations and previously self-published books are not eligible.
      * If you have hired Perugia Press editor Susan Kan for a personal
      manuscript review of any of your work, you are not eligible to enter.
      * Individual poems many have been published previously in
      magazines, journals, anthologies, and chapbooks of fewer than 48
      pages, but the collection as a whole must be unpublished.
      * Simultaneous submissions are fine. Notify Perugia Press if
      accepted elsewhere.

      Process

      * Manuscripts are generally between 45 and 80 pages. Please submit
      manuscripts that fall within or close to this page count. Use 8.5 x
      11-inch white paper with legible typeface, pagination, contents, and
      no more than one poem per page.
      * A non-refundable entry fee of $25 must accompany each
      submission. You may submit more than one manuscript; each is
      considered separately and must include a separate entry fee.
      * Manuscripts must be submitted between August 1 and November 15.
      Winner is announced by April 1.
      * All manuscripts will be recycled or deleted at the conclusion of
      the competition. Please do not send your only copy.

      Judging

      * To be certain that manuscripts receive the fairest
      consideration, all manuscripts are submitted to the judging panel
      anonymously. Take care to follow instructions so that we can remove
      your name.
      * All readers are trusted and respected by Perugia Press.
      * We adhere to the CLMP Ethics Statement. See below.

      from your manuscript and save as a single electronic file in .pdf
      format (e.g. poems.pdf). Other accepted formats are .rtf and .doc
      (MSWord).
      * Read and follow all application instructions on the online
      submissions page.
