Call for Poetry Book Submissions

Tupelo Press Open Submissions Month for Poetry

Deadline: July 31st, 2009


Type: Poetry Book

Reading Fee: $25

Looking for: Book Length Poetry Collections, 48-90 pages

Accepts: Electronic Submissions

From their site:
Throughout July, Tupelo Press will hold open submissions for book-length poetry collections (48-90 pages). Aware of the current economy, we have reduced our reading fee from $35 to $25. We also now accept electronic submissions, which saves on photocopying and postage, via a special transfer site. This ensures correct formatting and provides automatic receipts and a log-in option to check the status of your manuscript. We will continue to accept submissions by postal mail as well.

Historically Tupelo Press has granted contracts each year to three to five poetry books submitted in July, for example Ted Deppe's ORPHEUS ON THE RED LINE, Karen An-hwei Lee's ARDOR, Mark Halliday's KEEP THIS FOREVER, Ellen Doré Watson's THIS SHARPENING, and Michael Chitwood's SPILL. Tupelo Press editors will read all manuscripts.

In addition to July's open submissions for poetry, fiction and nonfiction manuscripts are welcome year-round. Click here and scroll down to view the complete Submissions Guidelines for fiction and nonfiction.

See the Submissions tab on our website for complete guidelines.
