Full-length poetry manuscripts are now being considered for The Texas Review Press Breakthrough Poetry Prize: Georgia. The TRP Breakthrough Prize is designed to find and champion emerging poets in every state of the American South. This year, we seek book-length manuscripts of 50-80 pages from residents of Georgia who have not published a full-length collection of poems. Please include a cover letter with your submission, as well as two title pages—one with your contact information, including e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number—and the other with the title only. Include an acknowledgments page for previous publications. Paul Ruffin to judge.
There is no reading fee. The Breakthrough Poetry Prize entails
publication of the winning manuscript, national distribution via the
Texas A&M University Press Consortium, plus twenty-five free copies
furnished to author upon publication.
All submissions must be sent as e-mail attachments to:
trp.ga.poetry.prize(at)gmail.com (replace (at) with @) )
in one of
the following formats: MS Word 1997-2003 (.doc), MS Word 2007/2010

of the above formats.
