Calyx Poetry Prize (Oregon Women Only) & Call for Submissions

30 June 2009

CALYX is hosting a poetry prize for Oregon women poets. The submission period is September 1-31, 2009. Applicants should send a complete unpublished book manuscript (75-125 pages) with biographical data and a $25 entry fee (payable in check or money order) to CALYX Poetry Book Prize, PO Box B, Corvallis, OR 97339. Manuscripts will be read blind—do not put your name and address on any pages, only on a separate cover letter. Final judge for the poetry book contest will be announced in July 2009. CALYX editors will read and select up to 10-15 finalists to send to the final judge who will select the prize winning manuscript. It is possible the judge could decide not to select a winner. The winning manuscript will be announced in February 2010. The winner will receive a CALYX Books contract for publication of the manuscript in Fall 2010 and a $500 award.

Additionally, we are also open for poetry and prose submissions from women writers around the country from October 1 to December 31. We are open to art submissions and book reviews year-round. More information on all of these can be found at
