The 2012 Akron Poetry Prize is open for submissions until June 15 via The University of Akron Press.
From the website: “The Akron Series in Poetry was founded to bring to the public writers who speak in original and compelling voices. Each year, The University of Akron Press offers the Akron Poetry Prize, a competition open to all poets writing in English. The winning poet receives $1,500 and publication of his or her book. The final selection will be made by a nationally prominent poet. The final judge for 2012 is Dara Wier. Other manuscripts may also be considered for publication in the series.”
