Are you an emerging Canadian poet with a 48-60 page manuscript that you want to get published? Do you dream of being recognized as one of Canada’s best new poets? Quattro Books proudly introduces our “Best New Poets in Canada Series” Contest. Until Dec 31st, send us the best 5 poems from your manuscript, for the chance to be part of our newest national poetry anthology series!
Ten finalists will be shortlisted and invited to submit their full manuscripts. Three winners will be selected and published in the premier edition of our annual “Best New Canadian Poets” anthology series launching in the Fall of 2018!
We invite diversity and excellence. If you have a chapbook-to-manuscript-length collection of 48-60 pages of poetry, submit five poems from your manuscript, to a maximum of ten pages.
The poems should be in 12 Font, New Times Roman, with up to 40 lines per page.
Poets should be Canadian citizens or hold permanent resident status. Only poets who have yet to publish a full book of poetry are eligible. Previous publication of single poems in journals, magazines, anthologies or online is acceptable. Simultaneous submissions are not acceptable, however, our finalists will be announced February 1, 2018.
