Submit no more than 30 pages of your best work. The submitted manuscript will be a Word file and must contain a cover page with contact information, a biography of no more than 100 words and a list of publications if applicable.
THRP is not concerned with the poet who has the most publications; rather, we wish to award the best writing that contributes the most to the craft of poetry. No identifying marking should appear on any page of the manuscript. Submissions that fail to comply are automatically disqualified.
THRP retains First North American Serial Rights and may use portions of the winning title to promote the press and/or other events in perpetuity.
At the close of the contest, all entrants will be asked to record a reading of their work that will be published on THRP's Facebook page.
