P – Poetry International: C.P. Cavafy Prize 2021

December 2, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


EXTENDED TO DEC 15th. Every year, Poetry International gives a prize of $1,000 and publication in Poetry International for a single poem. Editors of Poetry International will judge each submission. Submit up to 3 poems with a $15 entry fee. Each additional poem will require $3 extra.

In the “Title” box, only provide the name of all poems (ex: “House” “Tree” “Car”) — this makes it easier for our Editorial Assistants to track your entries/poems. Feel free to use key words if your titles are long.

  • Only previously unpublished work is eligible for consideration.
  • Provide your contact information (including email and phone) & titles of all poems submitted in the cover letter.
  • No identifying information should appear anywhere on the submission. Keep the submission simple and easy to read, avoid unusual fonts. Please no illustrations.
  • ALL poems/entries are to be uploaded to Submittable within a single document (i.e. only ONE PDF, .doc, or .docx file is needed to submit “X” number of poems/entries, per submission) – We prefer doc and docx files

Simultaneous submission allowed: You may submit your poems simultaneously.  Please note whether or not any poems/entries are simultaneous submissions.

Poems translated from other languages are eligible ONLY IF you wrote both the original poem and the translation.
The winner is announced on our website.
