New Issues is now taking submissions for the 2010 Green Rose Prize, an award given to a manuscript by a poet who has already published at least one previous collection of poetry (first books should be sent to the New Issues Poetry Prize). The contest is judged by the editors of the press, who often choose additional manuscripts to publish.
Previous winners of the Green Rose Prize include Malinda Markham, Patty Seyburn, Jon Pineda, Noah Eli Gordon, Joan Houlihan, Hugh Seidman, and Christine Hume.
*Eligibility: Poets writing in English who have already published one or more full-length collections of poetry. We will consider individual collections and volumes of new and selected poems. Besides the winner, New Issues may publish as many as three additional manuscripts from this competition.
*Please include a $20 reading fee. Checks should be made payable to New Issues Press.
*Postmark Deadline: September 30, 2009. The winning manuscript will be named in January 2010 and published in the spring of 2011.
