Drunken Boat Accepting Submissions for Inaugural Book Contest in Poetry

Drunken BoatDrunken Boat will accept submissions until June 25, 2014 for its inaugural book contest in poetry, including hybrid, multi-authored, and translated manuscripts. Forrest Gander will select the contest winner. The winning poet will receive publication, $500, 20 author copies, a debut reading at AWP and ads in both print and online sources. Drunken Boat books are distributed by SPD.

Excerpts from finalist manuscripts will be published in a special Drunken Boat folio issue. The contest is open to all writers, including those who have already published books of poems, but the manuscript as a whole must be previously unpublished. The journal respectfully requests that colleagues, current students, recent students, and close friends of Forrest Gander refrain from submitting, as these manuscripts are ineligible. Also, current Drunken Boat staff members and interns may not submit to the contest.

The reading fee is $25; for an additional $3 to cover shipping costs, contest entrants can opt to receive a copy of the winning book or any Drunken Boat book. The contest winner will be announced via email newsletter and website in September 2014. The winning book will be published in April 2015.

Manuscripts between 30 and 120 pages should be submitted, along with a table of contents and cover page with the manuscript title only. If applicable, include an acknowledgements page of previous publications. Don’t include any identifying information in your submission.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please let Drunken Boat know if a submitted manuscript is accepted elsewhere. Poets who are unable to pay the reading fee can contact Drunken Boat at editor@drunkenboat.com to inquire about options.

Drunken Boat endorses and abides by the Code of Ethics developed by the Council of Literary Magazines and Press (CLMP). Drunken Boat is fully committed to fairness, believes that contest procedures should be transparent. If you have questions about our policies or practices, please do not hesitate to inquire by email.
