The OSU Press/The Journal Wheeler Prize for Poetry submission season opens on Sept 1, 2013!
Each year, The Journal selects one full-length manuscript of poetry for
publication by The Ohio State University Press. In addition to
publication under a standard book contract, the winning author receives
the Charles B. Wheeler prize of $2500.
Entries of at least 48 typed pages of original poetry must be electronically submitted during the month of September.
Your name or other identification should appear only on a separate cover page. All manuscripts will be read anonymously.
Manuscripts must be previously unpublished. Some or all of the poems in
the collection may have appeared in periodicals, chapbooks, or
anthologies, but these must be identified in the acknowledgements page.
A nonrefundable handling fee of $28.00 will be charged for each entry.
Entrants will receive a one-year subscription to The Journal.
The winning entry, screened by the editorial staff of The Journal and
chosen by The Ohio State University Press's Poetry Editor, Kathy Fagan,
will be announced the following January.
Submit via Submittable starting September 1st.
