Diversion Press announces our 2009 Poetry Anthology
Submit: Submit no more than five poems. Send all poems on a separate Word document with your name, address, phone number, and Email address on each page. Your poems should appear exactly as you would like them to appear if accepted for publication. Prepare a cover letter. Send the entire thing as a single attachment to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The subject line should read Poetry Submission. The Email should state that the poetry is attached. Do not submit more than once for this contest.
Selection: There is no reading fee and poems will be read and accepted or rejection given by Email. Once the contest end period is over (January 2, 2010) the winners will be announced.
Prizes: YOU DO NOT have to purchase a copy of the book to be included or to win a prize. We will select the poems and winners before the book is published or we even offer the book for sale.
All winners will get a free book (books are not free unless you win—but you will be offered copies at a much reduced price). All winners will also get their name and place put into the book. All entrants may have their poems also placed on the website.
Diversion Press only asks for rights to the print the poems in this anthology and any reprints of this anthology under the same name. The rights then revert back to the poets.
1st place: $20
2nd place: $15 dollars
3rd place: $10 dollars
