The 2011 Colorado Prize for Poetry, judged by Cole Swensen, is underway! We are accepting book-length poetry manuscripts now through the deadline of January 14, 2011. The author of the winning manuscript will receive $1,500 and the book will be published by the Center for Literary Publishing (that’s us!). And guess what! For the first time ever, we’re accepting these submissions online at We’re also still accepting submissions via snail mail; whichever method is easiest for you is fine with us. Complete submission guidelines are available here and here. Check out the most recent winner, Zach Savich’s Annulments, winner of the 2010 Colorado Prize, as well as all the other winning titles since 1995 here.
