Poetry Book Contest: Elixir Press

Elixir Press is sponsoring a contest for a first or second book of poetry. The winner will receive a prize of $1,000. The winning manuscript will be published by Elixir Press. All entries will be considered for publication.

Manuscripts should be typed on one side of the page only and on standard paper. No dot matrix unless letter quality.

Send a business size SASE for reply only; manuscripts cannot be returned. An SAS postcard for receipt of the manuscript is optional.

Please use a 12 to 14 point font.

Do not send the only copy of your manuscript.

Do not send biographical material, photographs, CDs, videos, or illustrations.

Enclose a cover sheet stating the name of the manuscript and the author's name, address, and telephone number and a cover sheet with the title alone.

Manuscripts must be paginated and include a table of contents and an acknowledgments page if appropriate.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, so long as Elixir is notified immediately if a manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

Manuscripts must be at least 48 pages in length.

Please secure your manuscript with either a binder clip or file folder. Do not otherwise bind your manuscript.

Contest entry fee is $25.

The postmark deadline for the contest is March 31, 2009.

Sure. There are a lot of online magazines that publish poetry. I'll keep my eyes open for some possible markets. These markets don't charge you to submit, but some of them are pretty selective.
