    Poems should be typed, and formatted as desired. Three poems maximum, any style or form. We prefer unpublished work, but published poems may be submitted. If published before, please include where, when and any acknowledgement information we may need. While we take reasonable care with all your work, be sure not to send your only copies.

    Send a stamped self addresses envelop with enough postage to return your work. Send an index card with your name, mailing address, email, phone and title of each poem submitted listed on it.

    If your poem is selected for the Poetry Prize, we will need a brief (50 word) biographical statement from you.

    That's it. Winners will be selected in July, 2008.

    Good Luck.
