I can't believe it's been a year since Trio House Press opened its contest submission period. Now it's time again to submit to "The Trio Award" (for poets who have not published more than one full-length book) and/or to "The Louise Bogan Award" (for all poets writing in the English language--no matter how many books they have or have not published).
Here is the link to THP's website, with all of the guidelines and information you need in order to submit! http://triohousepress.org/
The judges this year are Mihaela Moscaliuc (Trio Award) and Joan Houlihan (Louise Bogan Award)--both fantastic poets in their own right.
And congratulations to our first two prize winners: Iris Dunkle (Trio Award) for "Gold Passage" and David Groff (Louise Bogan Award) for "Clay." Both books will be out around the first of the year.
Also, congratulations to Matt Mauch for his manuscript, "If You're Lucky Is A Theory Of Mine," selected by the editors of THP in the summer open submission period. Matt's book will be out soon, as well.
Ok, now let's get those manuscripts submitted!
