      The Aldrich Press Poetry Book Award 2013

      Deadline May 31, 2013. The winner will be announced on October 1st 2013.

      Winner receives a print publication, 12% royalties off Amazon sales,
      $200.00 and 50 free books (a retail value of $700.00).

      Finalists will also be considered for publication.

      Final judge: Marly Youmans

      Initial screening by Aldrich Press editor, Karen Kelsay.

      Entries may not be previously published, but individual poems may have
      been published in journals and magazines. (Please do not include large
      sections that have been previously published as a collection. A good
      rule is to not let your manuscript contain more than 50% of its poems
      from earlier books.)

      Unlimited entries per person.

      All poetry styles are welcome (metrical or free verse).

      Poetry manuscripts may be 50 to 130 pages.

      Acknowledgments may be included in the manuscript but are not required.

      Email entries only.

      You may enter more than once, but please send a separate entry fee with
      each new entry. You will also need to send in a new cover letter along
      with each manuscript.

      Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Please notify us immediately if
      your work has been accepted elsewhere.

      Entry fees are $15.00 and may be paid over the paypal link at the very
      bottom of this page. Please include your name, address, and the name of
      your manuscript.

      Marly Youmans will be the final judge, and she will be judging blind.
      Therefore, your name should only appear in your cover letter and on
      your paypal receipt.

      The final judge will receive five manuscripts, and will be instructed
      to disqualify any work that she recognizes. We will refund your entry
      fee if that should happen.

      Please follow the 4 steps
      1. Pay the entry fee of $15.00 via paypal.
      2. In subject line of email include your name and "Aldrich Book
      Contest."
      3. Paste cover letter into the body of your email (including the name
      of your manuscript and all your personal information).
      4. Attach manuscript (with nothing to identify who you are on it).

      Please put the following information in your cover letter:

      Your name
      Title of your manuscript
      A brief biography
      Your paypal receipt number
      Address, phone number, email
