NO PHONY ‘READING FEES’ OR ‘ENTRY FEES’

it REALLY is FREE

This year, as in the previous seven years, a New Poet WILL be launched

world-wide in what we believe to be the only totally FREE competition ever!

NOTE: At the discretion of the judges up to three runners-up will also be awarded the prize of a personal collection published by erbacce-press as a chap-book. They will also have their own dedicated sales-page, a publishing contract and six copies of their new book.

The rules are simple but if they are not followed

    exactly then your submission will not be read:

All submissions must come in ONE single MS Word attachment OR in the body of an email with ‘erbacce-prize’ in the subject line

You should submit five pages of poetry; we don’t mind if it has been previously published but do let us know: NOTHING ELSE; no bios… no photos… no frames… nothing… just poetry…

ONE (five page) submission per poet only please

Please include a full name and snail-mail address in the body of the email. If yo do not do this, then your submission will not be read.

**********************************

……and that’s all there is to it; nothing complicated, no fees,

just submit by clicking on the button at the foot of the page

(If you have problems with the link, send your submission to alan@erbacce.com)

Once we have your submission we will acknowledge it and then your identification will be removed and the poems will be sent to five members of our selection panel who are all widely published poets and/or academics and they will make the recommendations for a short-list from which the winner will be chosen. In June 2013 we will place a short list on this page and then towards the end of June 2013 the winner(s) will be announced.

We would hope to have the winner’s book(s) ready for sale by Christmas 2013 but that depends on how quickly the winner(s) get their MS and wishes to us at erbacce We will work with the poet to produce a book they will be proud of; consulting and suggesting at every crucial stage…

PLEASE do enter! There really is no catch; it’s entirely FREE!!!!!

A word to the wise; which shouldn’t need saying but unfortunately it does: every year we get email submissions from poets with email addresses like pluto-seminides@yahoo.com and that’s really very witty if you’re aged six and a half. The email address probably belongs to someone called Peter Smith. However should Peter Smith win then we have to seek-out his email address among 7,000 others on our books. And of course he doesn’t exist; all that exists is the idiotic pluto-seminides… and so Peter Smith is never discovered and eventually his winning poems are dumped. PLEASE; send submissions in an email address containing your PROPER NAME. ALL publishers will reject daft email addresses; do yourself a favour; it would be tragic to win… and then to be dumped because we can’t find you…

Entries close end of May 2013; GOOD LUCK to everyone…
