poetry book contest extends deadline
- Subject: Imaginary Friend Press Full Length Contest Deadline Extension
Imaginary Friend Press is extending the reading period for its inaugural full length manuscript contest.
Submissions will be accepted until Mar. 31, 2013. The winner will be announced in June.
The winning book will be published by Imaginary Friend Press. The author will receive an honorarium of $250 and 40 copies of their book. Imaginary Friend Press may also select other books for publication.
To submit the entry fee is $11 for entry or $16 dollars for entry and a copy of the winning book (US addresses only) (We’re also adding a dollar onto our submission fee to pay the fine folks at Submittable) . Simultaneous submissions are accepted as long as IFP is informed of publication elsewhere. Multiple submissions are allowed with entry fees for each submission.
Manuscripts must be between 48-96 pages in length. Manuscripts must be paginated, have a table of contents and an acknowledgements section (if poems have been published individually).
Manuscripts may have individual poems published, but they should not be published as a whole elsewhere.
Style and theme are open.
There should not be any art, photographs, images included in the manuscript.
This is not a first book contest, but authors seeking their first full length book publication are encouraged to submit. Multi-authored collections are acceptable, but IFP can still only award one honorarium.
