The Laureate Prize for Poetry--deadline Aug 30

To enter, submit up to three of your best unpublished, uncommitted (not promised for first publication elsewhere) poems (10 page total maximum per group of three), along with your email address for results (no SASEs,please), contact information, a brief bio, and a $15 fee for each set of up to three poems entered.

Fee: $15.00. * Postmark deadline: 8/31/09. Personal checks only, please; NO money orders.

The winner will receive $600 plus publication in The National Poetry Review.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but if the work is selected by TNPR for the prize or for publication, it must be withdrawn from elsewhere unless you have withdrawn it from us two weeks before our acceptance. Multiple submissions are acceptable with a reading fee for each group of three poems. Page limit per group: 10
