Friends, I wanted to bring to your attention three poetry contests:
- Dignity not Detention – A prize of $500 and publication in Poetry International will be given for a single poem written for refugees currently being detained pending their hearings. (A similar prize will be offered to refugee poets in U.S. detention centers.)
- Paraclete Press announces the inaugural Paraclete Poetry Prize. First prize is a $1,000 honorarium and book publication in Fall 2020. Poets are welcome to submit a book-length (60-75 poems, none more than one book page in length) manuscript before January 30, 2020.
- Two Sylvias Press Wilder Series Poetry Book Prize. This contest is open to women over 50 years of age, and prizes include $1000, publication, 20 copies of the winning book, and more.
