ELIGIBILITY

A poet writing in English who has not previously published, or self-published, a full-length collection of poems is eligible to submit to The HKU International Poetry Prize. This contest is open to poets worldwide.

GUIDELINES

*Deadline
Given the new reach and demand of the international prize we are extending the deadline for receiving all manuscripts to March 30, 2015. Please be sure to send your manuscript with plenty of time for arrival, if sending it by post.

Length of Manuscript 
Manuscripts must be at least 48 pages in length.

Format of Manuscript
Manuscripts should be single-spaced and printed in Times New Roman or a similar plain font.

Reading Fee 
A $100 Hong Kong Dollar (equivalent to $13 US Dollars) reading fee will accompany each manuscript. Online credit card payment or a cheque is accepted.

Note: Due to significant demand, the reading fee is now changed to $100 Hong Kong Dollars. Please note; poets who submitted the earlier reading fee will be contacted and reimbursed for the difference in payment.

Simultaneous Submissions 
Manuscripts considered elsewhere may be submitted, but we must be notified immediately if the collection is accepted for prize or publication.
