    The 14th Annual A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize
    The A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize is awarded to honor a poet's first book, while also honoring the late founder of BOA Editions, Ltd., a not-for-profit publishing house of poetry and poetry in translation.

    FINAL JUDGE: Mary Szybist, National Book Award-winning poet

    WINNER RECEIVES:

    A $1,500 honorarium and book publication by BOA Editions, Ltd. in BOA's Spring 2016 season, within the A. Poulin, Jr. New Poets of America Series

    ELIGIBILITY:

    Entrants must be a citizen or legal resident of the United States.
    Poets, who are at least 18 years of age, who have yet to publish a full-length-book collection of poetry.
    Translations and collaborative manuscripts are not eligible.
    Individual poems from the manuscript may have been published previously in magazines, journals, anthologies, chapbooks of 32 pages or less, or self-published books of 46 pages or less, but must be submitted in manuscript form. Any published books of poetry disqualify contestants from entering this contest, though books published in other genres do not.
    Employees, volunteers and board members of BOA Editions, Ltd., or their partners or spouses, or their immediate families, or immediate family of the judge are not eligible.
    As per the Publishing Contest Ethics, as advanced by the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) , any person who has studied poetry in a formal program with the Final Judge - through a college, university, community program, residency, or private tutorial, within the last two years - is not eligible to submit a manuscript to this contest.
