CONTEST SEASON

14 Jan

42 Miles Press Poetry Award

Judge: David Dodd Lee, Series Editor

The 42 Miles Press Poetry Award was created in an effort to bring fresh and original voices to the poetry reading public. The prize is offered annually to any poet writing in English, including poets who have never published a full-length book as well as poets who have published several. New and Selected collections of poems are also welcome.

Manuscripts submitted for the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award should exhibit an awareness of the contemporary “voice” in American poetry, an awareness of our moment in time as poets. We are excited to receive poetry that is experimental as well as work of a more formalist bent, as long as it reflects a complexity and sophistication of thought and language.

Urgency, yes; melodrama, not so much.

The winning poet will receive $1,000, publication of his or her book, and 50 author copies. The winner will also be invited to give a reading at Indiana University South Bend as part of the release of the book. The final selection will be made by the Series Editor. Current or former students or employees of Indiana University South Bend, as well as friends of the Series Editor, are not eligible for the prize.

Winners will be announced via our website in the summer of 2018. We will also announce the winner in major magazines such as Poets & Writers. The winning book will be published in September 2019 and be available to purchase on SPD and Amazon.

Manuscripts will be accepted from December 1st, 2017 to March 1st, 2018. Manuscripts received prior to December 1, or postmarked after March 1, will be recycled and the entry fee returned.

For guidelines and more information.

17 Sep

Nate Pritt’s Decoherence was reviewed by Poets & Writer’s this week.

Excerpt from the review:
“In his cerebral eighth collection, Pritts (Post Human) cycles through the many metaphorical connotations of light, investigating each at close range, and laments the ephemerality of experience…”

DECOHERENCE

12 Jun

From Mind the Bird Media:

Nate PrittsDECOHERENCE arrives this October from 42 Miles Press! David Rivard says, “I love [Pritts’] loyalty to the incidental, the moments where our truest feelings reveal themselves. He reminds me a bit of Joseph Ceravolo—he takes the bewilderment that we so often feel and he turns it into a spell devised to heal us.”

If you’re interested in writing a review or talking to Nate, DM or email with galley requests or questions.
