Enter the 2011 Sawtooth Poetry Prize competition now!

Ahsahta Press, a member of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses,
conforms to the CLMP Code of Ethics and participated in its drafting.

• The Sawtooth Poetry Prize honors a book of original poetry in English by a single author; translations are not eligible for this award. The winning poet receives a $1,500 honorarium upon publication plus 25 copies of the published book. In addition to announcements in national publications, the winning book and author will be featured on the Ahsahta website, as will lists of finalists and semi-finalists.

• The final judge for the competition is Paul Hoover.

• Entries must be filed between January 1 and March 1, 2011. All entries should be made on our Submission Manager system.

• Manuscripts should be 48 to 100 pages of poetry, submitted in PDF, RTF, or MSWord format.

* The author's name should not appear in the manuscript. The title page should contain the title only. The author information is collected separately in Submission Manager.

* DO NOT include acknowledgments, author bio, or any other identifying information.

* Manuscript revisions are not permitted during the contest.

• The entry fee of $25.00 is payable during entry via Paypal or with Mastercard, Visa, or Discover cards.

• Winner is expected to be announced in May 2011. All entries are eligible for publication by Ahsahta Press; separate submission of a Sawtooth entry during our open reading period is unnecessary.

• Eligibility: Poets writing in English are eligible. Previous book publication is not a consideration. Students and former students of Boise State University and of this year's judge may not enter; close friends of the judge are also not considered eligible. Simultaneous submissions are permissable, but entrants are asked to notify Ahsahta Press immediately if a manuscript becomes committed elsewhere.

The CLMP Code of Ethics: CLMP's community of independent literary publishers believes that ethical contests serve our shared goal: to connect writers and readers by publishing exceptional writing. We believe that intent to act ethically, clarity of guidelines, and transparency of process form the foundation of an ethical contest. To that end, we agree to 1) conduct our contests as ethically as possible and to address any unethical behavior on the part of our readers, judges, or editors; 2) to provide clear and specific contest guidelines -- defining conflict of interest for all parties involved; and 3) to make the mechanics of our selection process available to the public. This Code recognizes that different contest models produce different results, but that each model can be run ethically. We have adopted this Code to reinforce our integrity and dedication as a publishing community and to ensure that our contests contribute to a vibrant literary heritage.
