This may be the chance you need to get your muse out there. The Poetry Mail is currently accepting manuscripts for its 4th RL Poetry Award. Writers are required to submit 8 to 10 poems from completed manuscripts or manuscripts in progress. Writers are not restricted to submit only unpublished poems, a mix of published and unpublished poems are allowed. 
The Poetry Mail will release a longlist of 12 Indian poets and 12 international poets. Afterwards, the longlisted poets will be required to submit their full manuscripts. The manuscripts will be judged. Six Indian poets and six international poets will be shortlisted. And finally from the shortlist, two winners will emerge,  one Indian and the other international.
Submission guidelines:
  • Writer participating in the contest should be above 18. 
  • Only those without any published book or those whose books were published through vanity/small press are eligible to participate.
  • Please submit 8-10 poems. Poetry Mail prefers unpublished poems but allows you to mix few published poems.

  • The .doc or .docx file should be formatted using Times New Roman 12. All poems should be left aligned.
  • All poems should be in a single file.
And be reminded, The Poetry Mail is very strict with guidelines.
