The final judge for this year's Snowbound Award is Ellen Doré Watson.

Manuscripts are judged anonymously.
Tupelo Press will consider all finalists for publication.
Guidelines:
This competition is open to any poet writing in English. Previously published poems with proper acknowledgment are acceptable. Translations are not eligible, nor are previously self-published books. Employees of Tupelo Press and authors previously published by Tupelo Press are not eligible.
Manuscript Requirements:
Submit 20 to 30 pages (of poems) plus SASE and a $20 reading fee. Manuscripts should be on good quality white paper, paginated consecutively, with a table of contents and acknowledgments, and bound with a clip. Include two cover pages, one with only the title of the manuscript and a second with your name, address, telephone number(s), email address, and title of the manuscript. The author’s name should not appear elsewhere on the manuscript. Please retain a copy for your records.

* The Snowbound Chapbook Award is open to anyone writing in English, whether living in the United States or abroad. Translations are not eligible for this prize.
* Individual poems in a contest manuscript may have been previously published in magazines, print or web journals, or anthologies, but the work as a whole must be unpublished (this includes previously self-published books).
* Simultaneous submissions to other publishers or contests are permitted, as long as you notify Tupelo Press promptly if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere.
* Before you submit a manuscript to a Tupelo Press competition, please consider exploring the work of the poets we have published.
* Tupelo Press endorses and abides by the Ethical Guidelines of the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP), which can be reviewed here, along with more about Tupelo Press’s ethical considerations for literary contests.

Entries must be postmarked or uploaded to the online Submission Manager (see below) between December 1, 2010 and February 28, 2011.
Terms:
A reading fee of $20 (US) by check or Pay Pal must accompany each submission. If sending a check, please make this payable to Tupelo Press, Inc. Multiple submissions are accepted, so long as each submission is accompanied by a separate $20 reading fee.

Why a reading fee? We are an independent, nonprofit literary press. Reading fees help defray, though they don’t fully cover, the cost of reviewing manuscripts and publishing the many books we select through our competitions.
Notification:
If mailing your submission, you may include a stamped, self-addressed postcard for confirmation of your manuscript’s receipt. The online Submissions Manager (see below) automatically confirms receipt.

If you like, enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope (SASE) for notification of the winner. An email announcement will also be sent to all entrants. Do not enclose a SASE for return of manuscript; all manuscripts will be recycled at the conclusion of the competition, except those under consideration for future publication.

Kindly refrain from requesting an individual response to confirm our receipt of your manuscript and/or payment. Both the electronic submission manager and the PayPal system offer automated confirmations. For those wishing acknowledgment of a paper manuscript, your self-addressed stamped postcard will serve this purpose. We receive thousands of manuscripts each year and cannot offer individual acknowledgments beyond these. Thank you for your understanding.

Results will be announced in late spring 2011.
Online Submission
Click here to submit electronically. The online submission system will be accepting Snowbound Chapbook Award manuscripts between December 1, 2010 and February 28, 2011.
