Parlor Press's poetry series, Free Verse Editions, is pleased to announce the eighth annual New Measure Poetry Prize, which will carry a cash award of $1,000 and publication of an original, unpublished manuscript of poems. Submissions for the prize must be submitted between March 1 and June 30, 2016. The nonrefundable entry fee is $28.00. Multiple and simultaneous submissions are acceptable but entry fees are nonrefundable if the manuscript is withdrawn. Jon Thompson will judge this year's competition.
Other manuscripts not selected for the New Measure Poetry Prize may still be eligible for publication by Free Verse Editions. Friends and former students of the judge are not eligible for the prize but may submit for publication to Free Verse Editions (please check if you would like to submit for the prize and publication or publication only). Each manuscript should include a list of acknowledgments for published or forthcoming poems. The title page should include the name of the author, a postal address, telephone number, and email address. No feedback on submitted manuscripts can be offered. The recipient of the New Measure Poetry Prize will be announced by 1 December 2016.
