I’ve been asked by a few people now for a list of contests for published poetry books, so thanks to Bernadette Geyer for putting one together! These contests do have entry fees, as most do, but they also have sizable awards. If you have a poetry book published by a press, these may be something you want to consider.
Because this list gets a lot of page views, I’ve moved it to my new website blog and updated it with new links and new awards. If anyone knows of additional contests for already published books (or galleys), please post a comment and I will add to the list.
Recent updates: Added Nebraska Book Awards, Society of Midland Authors Awards, Midwest Book Awards. Several website links updated.
BOOK AWARDS FOR POETRY BOOKS
Note: advice of most of these contests is to submit book as soon as possible during submission period.
