The Malahat Review, Canada’s premier literary magazine, invites emerging poets from Canada, the United States, and elsewhere to enter the 2014 Far Horizons Award for Poetry Contest. Eligible poets have yet to publish their poetry in book form (a book of poetry is defined to have a length of 48 pages or more). One prize of $1,000 (Canadian Funds) is awarded to a single winner.
Entry fee (up to three poems, 60 lines each) is $25 for Canadian entries, $30 for U.S. entries, and $35 elsewhere. Additional entries (up to three poems per entry) are $15.
The deadline for this contest is May 1, 2014 (postmark date). Entries can be sent by regular mail or email.
Full contest guidelines can be found online: http://malahatreview.ca/contests/far_horizons_poetry/info.html.
