• The Moon City Poetry Award is for an original collection of poems written in English by a single author.

• Individual poems in the collection may be published in periodicals or may have appeared in a chapbook, but poems should not be previously published in full-length manuscript form.

• Open to all writers not associated with Moon City Press, its editors, or its judges, past or present. Missouri State University students, alumni, and employees are ineligible.

Manuscripts should be at least 48 pages. Please include a Table of Contents and an Acknowledgements page.

• Manuscripts should be submitted via Submittable.

A $25 entry fee is due via Submittable at the time of submission; entry fees are nonrefundable.
• Simultaneous submissions are permitted, though manuscripts should be withdrawn immediately if accepted elsewhere.

Deadline: May 1, 2014. Winners will be notified fall 2014 and the winner will be published in 2015.

First prize: $1000, publication by Moon City Press (including international distribution through the University of Arkansas Press), and a standard royalty contract. Three additional finalists will be named and considered for publication.
