Reb Livingston Wants You to Submit

The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Prize

The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Prize

The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Prize is a collaboration between Persea Books and The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Project. It sponsors the annual publication of a poetry collection by an American woman poet who has yet to publish a book of poems. The winner receives $1000.00 and publication of her collection by Persea.

Submitted manuscripts should include a title page, containing the author's name, the author's contact information, and the title of the collection; and a second title page, only the title of the collection. To help ensure impartiality among judges, the author's name should not appear on any other page of the submission other than the first of those two title pages. Manuscripts should be 50-80 pages and should be paginated, with the title of the collection included on each page as a header or footer, and fastened with a clip. Please do not staple or permanently bind submissions. Submitted manuscripts will not be returned. Submissions must be written in English to be considered. Translations are not accepted.

Entries must be postmarked between September 1 and October 31. They should be sent to The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Prize, c/o Persea Books, PO Box 1388, Columbia, MO 65205, and should include a check (in U.S. funds) in the amount of $20.00, made payable to the order of The Lexi Rudnitsky Poetry Project.

The winner is chosen by an anonymous selection committee and announced on Persea's web site in January.
