      The 2013 Red Mountain Prize for Poetry will award publication of a full-length book of poetry. The most important criterion is that the manuscript manifests significant themes in beautiful, strong and evocative language.
      The winner will receive publication with our standard contract and a $1000 award. All entries may be considered for future publication.
      SUBMIT through the electronic submission manager
      https://redmountainpress.submittable.com/submit
      Guidelines
      The author must hold all rights to the work. The manuscript may include poems previously published in a periodical, an anthology, chapbook, or on the web. Proper attribution must accompany previously published work.
      The author must be over 21 years of age.
      Send a manuscript of 48-75 pages in a single document via the submission manager
      https://redmountainpress.submittable.com/submit
      Each poem must begin on a new page with the title of the poem at the top. Do not have your name or identifying data on the manuscript. The submission manager links your data to your submission and you may enter an optional cover letter, which is not visible to the judges.
      Use Times New Roman or similar 12 pt font, with at least one-inch margins, 1.5 or double-spaced, paginated, with a Table of Contents. Title page should include ONLY the title. The text must be written in English and must be solely the author’s work. Very short poems, such as haiku, may be grouped together on a single page if they would appear together in the final book.
      Simultaneous submissions are accepted but you MUST notify Red Mountain immediately and withdraw your work at once if the work is accepted elsewhere.
      Red Mountain authors will do an initial blind reading of each entry and nominate the finalists. The publisher will choose the winning entry from among the finalists. If a judge recognizes work during the blind reading, that judge will recuse him/herself from consideration of that entry. People related to the publisher are not eligible. The final decision is at the sole discretion of the publisher.
      For guidance, please look at the books Red Mountain has published. No purchase is required to enter but we hope you will read the books, available at your public library and independent bookseller and our website, http://www.redmountainpress.us, Our books are distributed by http://www.spdbooks.org. Red Mountain Press, of course, does not discriminate on any ascriptive basis (i.e., gender, nationality, race), but is very discriminating in choosing the books it can publish.

      No information will be available in response to telephone inquires. Email questions to redmtnpressATgmailDOTcom and write prize queryin the subject line.
