Past student essay winners Helen H. Glaser Student Essay Awardees.
April 27, -- and our deadline this year has passed! What we want Interesting, lovely unpublished work unpublished as a whole; individual pieces may be published already of courseprose or poetry or some combination or something between genres, manuscript pages no more than one poem per page if you're sending poems unless they are very, very short.
Yes, as long as you can obtain reprint rights for any images you include, unless they're in the public domain or qualify under the exemption for fair use. We do prefer images be in low-res for the manuscript to keep file size down the submissions Essay poetry contest maxes out at around 9 megbut we'll need high-res versions if your manuscript is selected for publication.
It's fine with us if individual works have been published elsewhere, but the manuscript can't have been published as a whole before.
Please include specific acknowledgments if any of the works have appeared elsewhere: We recommend that your manuscript be as coherent--as much a project--as possible.
Not to say everything needs to be thematic or narratively related, but most of our winning chapbooks have a feeling of aesthetic unity or resonance: Chapbook manuscripts do not necessarily have to be diagrammatic though the diagrammers among us do enjoy those. Co-authored manuscripts are fine.
Submitting multiple manuscripts is fine with entry fees for each. If you send electronically, it'll be in the submitter info only.
If you send via the mail, include a detachable cover page. You may use a credit card if you like or a checking account etc.
No need to create an account. Once you complete step one it will click through to a page with step two on it also copied below just in case.
You'll have to create an account with the system if you haven't submitted to us before. Do NOT select "fiction," "poetry," or anything else.
That way it gets read, processed, and responded-to properly our contest submissions go through a different reading process than regular submissions. If you submit under something else things will get munged though we are happy to read your non-contest submissions whenever, of course and you'll have to resubmit.
Please give us some kind of cover letter if you like. PDF preferred, or Word format. If your submission is more than one file, copy and paste it into one file or otherwise attach it. A zipfile would be acceptable if that's easier. If you do not care, there is no need for this.
If you send electronically you'll be notified electronically by default.
No SASE required unless you want a copy of the winning chapbook. If you'd like us to send you a hardcopy results letter, that's fine then send us a SASE as specified below.
How to Get Your Work to Us old school hard copy postal mail: Manuscripts cannot be returned sorry—please don't send your only copy. Please send your manuscripts via airmail for best results.
And please do not send submissions certified mail, express mail, or anything we have to sign for; it's a pain and if we're not at the office, we're not going to be able to make a trip to the post office, which is a drag in Arizona, to pick up your manuscript.
If you want to overnight it, fine, just please check the "no signature req'd" box.
