Poetry Society of America Annual Awards
The PSA's Annual Awards are among the most prestigious honors available to poets. They offer emerging and established poets recognition at all stages of their careers. The awards recognize everything from a single poem to our highest honor, the Frost Medal, which celebrates lifetime achievement in poetry.
Open to PSA Members & Non-Members; Awards 6 and 7 are open to all eligible poets
Award 6—George Bogin Memorial Award, $500
Established by the family and friends of George Bogin for a selection of four or five poems that use language in an original way to reflect the encounter of the ordinary and the extraordinary and to take a stand against oppression in any of its forms. NOTE: Previous winners of the Bogin Award are kindly asked not to submit work again for this award.
Award 7—Robert H. Winner Memorial Award, $2,500
Established by the family and friends of Robert H. Winner, whose first book of poems appeared when he was almost fifty years old. This award acknowledges original work being done in mid-career by a poet who has not had substantial recognition, and is open to poets over forty who have published no more than one book. Send a brief but cohesive manuscript of 10 pages. Please include year of birth on cover page. Previously published work may be included in your submission; include acknowledgment of publications on your cover page. Poems entered as part of a Winner manuscript may be entered individually in other PSA contests, but NOT if they are previously published.
Deadline: December 22, 2016
