The December Prize will be given annually for a first or second book of poetry written in English. Action Books editors Johannes Göransson and Joyelle McSweeney will read all manuscripts and select one for publication and a $1,000 award. We are looking for writing that shares in the spirit of our press, writing that enlarges our notion of what poetry and language can do and be.
Those who have published no more than one book of poetry in English are invited to submit. Close friends and those who have studied with the editors are ineligible.
Translations cannot be considered for this prize, but Action Books welcomes queries about book-length translation projects.
