The prize will be judged by Ruminate poetry editor, Kristin George Bagdanov and is open to all forms of poetry. There are no geographical restrictions. $12 entry fee includes a complimentary digital copy of Ruminate. First place winner will receive a $500 cash prize, publication in Ruminate, and 15 copies of the limited-edition letterpress broadside. All entries will also be considered for publication in Ruminate. Submit two poems (of any form) per entry. We recommend that poems be between 10 and 30 lines in length, counting each blank line used as a stanza break as well as the title line and the blank line following the title. Poems that are outside 10-30 lines are still eligible but may require smaller type to fit well on the broadside.
