This year we are accepting manuscripts of poetry from the following states: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Montana, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Wyoming. (If your state isn't on this list, check back at the end of this submission period to see which 5 states we add next!)
Floating Bridge Press reads manuscripts of poetry for the Evergreen Award Tour from April 1st to October 31st (midnight PST).
We read and judge all submissions anonymously, so please do not to include your name or any identifying information in your manuscript. Make sure to complete all contact information on Submittable (it is hidden from our readers).
Manuscripts should be 48-80 pages of poetry, typed in a no less than 12 point font, paginated, and include a title page and table of contents.
Cover letters are optional and do not influence our reading.
At this time we do not accept translations or self-published books. Collaborations are okay, but only one prize is given, to be split between co-authors.
Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please notify us immediately if the manuscript finds another home.
Please do not include artwork in your manuscript, this includes photography.
You may submit multiple manuscripts but each submission requires the entry fee.
Your work will be disqualified if your name or contact info appears on the manuscript.
Submitters will be notified by email only. We are unable to offer editorial feedback to submitters.
The entry fee is $25, however, if this is prohibitive to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make sure you are able to submit.
