Levis Poetry Prize

I would like to add my voice to that of C. Dale Young, regarding Four Way Books.

The first few copies of my book came in the mail yesterday, and they’re perfect. But what’s more important than that, is how Four Way Books has treated this book (& me!) throughout the publication process. I could ask for no better. It’s been quite wonderful.

So, if you’re a poet looking for a first class publisher, do as I did, and send your manuscript. They’re reading for the Levis Poetry Prize right now:

2007 FOUR WAY BOOKS LEVIS POETRY PRIZE
Judge: Tony Hoagland

Submission Dates: January 1 – March 31, 2007 by email or regular mail

Awarding publication of a book-length collection and $1000.00

Open to any poet writing in English who is a citizen of the United States.

Finalists not chosen as the winner by the judge will be considered by the editors for publication outside of the contest. The press has a history of publishing finalists, but is under no obligation to do so.

Hooray!

Will it be at AWP? So our books can hang out?

Four Way used to accept submissions only from residents of the U.S., but now it's only from citizens. An interesting shift.

Thank you all very much!

Mary: Yes. And they must.
Andrew: But the citizens don't have to be residents...

So now if you all just buy 100 copies each?
