        The submission period for the 2014 Backwaters Prize goes through May 31, 2014.   Our prize judge for 2014 will be Patricia Smith. We adhere to the CLMP code of ethics for administering a literary contest.
        What you win
        The prize is a $1,000.00 cash prize plus publication of your manuscript.
        General Guidelines
        • This contest is open to anyone writing in English, whether the poet has previous book publications or not.
        • Full-length manuscript, (between 60 & 85 pages, not including credits, title page, contents page) original poetry in English (no translations).
        • No Collaborations.
        • May be a collection or a single long poem.
        • Use standard poetry format; that is, single-spaced, with double-spacing between stanzas.
        • No identification of poet anywhere in MS, including in the text of the poems. Manuscripts in which poet’s name is included anywhere in the text will be disqualified. If the poet needs to refer to or uses his/her own name in poems, a pseudonym must be used in the text.
        • Winner will be allowed to make changes to text.
        • Do not include photos or drawings in the manuscript. Do not send manuscript corrections—winner will be allowed to make manuscript changes. The title page may have no identification of the poet on it.
        • There is a reading fee of $25.
