Best New Poets is an annual anthology of 50 poems from emerging writers. The 2009 guest editor is Kim Addonizio, and she will select 50 poems from nominations made by literary magazines and writing programs, as well as an Open Internet Competition.
Best New Poets will only accept submissions from writers who have NOT published a book-length poetry collection (Poets with forthcoming books may only enter if their first book's publication date is after November 15, 2009).
Work submitted may be unpublished work or work published after April 15, 2008 for which the writer currently retains all rights (allowing the writer to publish it again).
Deadline June 1, 2009.
