Because I was lucky enough to see a reading by the poety Matthew Dickman and adored his poetry, I used him for a basis for finding a way to get my poetry book published… and I may have stumbled on something.
The American Poetry Review seems to do a contest every year and the prize is $3,000 and getting your book published by Copper Canyon Press.
That. Would. Be. The. Ultimate. Prize. Ever.
But the contest runs between August and October. I’m bookmarking that as a good option. If something doesn’t come up before then I’m entering! I’ll also send in to Copper Canyon Press itself before that!
Does anyone know about similar contests?
I am signed up for my housing at Lancaster!!!! *CONFETTI*
I’m seriously on my way to going!! I’m really REALLY going to study abroad at Lancaster! O__O
I’m so incredibly excited!
I also ended up getting a job! It’s more of a volunteer position for the position I wanted but they didn’t have the funding for, but they think there’s something I can do also that they can pay me for! Which is fantastic!
And I’ve come up with a novel… and it’s genius… but other than that I’m being a special kind of slacker when it comes to my writing.
I promise I’ll be famous someday, you guys. It’s just going to take me a little while to get up off my ass and get there…
