    The Anhinga Prize for Poetry
    Anhinga Press: The Anhinga Prize for Poetry

    The Anhinga Prize for Poetry has been offered annually since 1983 for a manuscript of original poetry in English. The competition is open to writers in English from all regions. The winner receives $2000, and the winning manuscript will be published by Anhinga Press.

    Contest Rules

    (To be certain you have followed all guidelines, we suggest that you use this convenient checklist.)

    • Each submission must be accompanied by a $25 reading fee. Make checks payable to Anhinga Press. (Important: If you have entered the contest before, note that the reading fee is different this year!)

    • Do not put your name on your manuscript. Instead, make two title pages--one with the manuscript title, your name, address and phone number, and a second title page with only the manuscript's title.

    • Manuscripts must be 48-80 pages, excluding front matter. They may be single- or double-spaced, and all pages must be numbered. Please do not staple or bind your manuscript.

    • Include a self-addressed, stamped, #10 envelope for notification of contest results.

    • Submissions will be accepted from February 15 until May 1 of each year. Manuscripts received prior to February 15 or postmarked after May 1 will be recycled and the entry fee returned.

    • Manuscripts will not be returned. Please keep copies of your work.

    • Please send manuscripts to:
