$3,000 Palette Poetry Emerging Poet Prize

This prize is specifically for emerging poets, and will only accept submissions from poets with fewer than two full-length collections out at the time of submission—though poets with no books published are especially encouraged to submit. The winning poet will be awarded $3000, publication, and a brief interview in Palette Poetry. Second and third place will receive $300 & $200 respectively, as well as publication. The top ten finalists will be selected by Palette editors, and guest judge Safia Elhillo will then select the winner and two runner-ups from among the ten finalists.
