4. How can I find out about book awards offered by the Academy?
Detailed guidelines and entry forms for almost
all of our awards are available right
here on this website. If you have read the guidelines carefully and still
have a question, feel free to e-mail: email@example.com.
5. What is meant by a "standard edition"?
A book that is published in a standard edition contains forty or more pages of
text and is printed in a run of five hundred or more copies. Anything
smaller, either in length or in print-run, is ineligible for the Academy's book
awards. Poets who have published books only in nonstandard editions may be
eligible to enter the contest for the Walt Whitman Award.
6. May I submit entries to the Academy's book awards online?
We accept online submissions only for the Walt Whitman award. All of our other awards are for published books or book-length manuscripts.
