It's that time of year. Starting now, Best New Poets, an annual anthology of 50 poems from emerging writers, is accepting submissions for its 2014 open competition. When the competition closes on May 20, guest editor Dorianne Laux and our team of readers will begin the process of selecting 50 finalists for publication in the anthology, which will arrive on bookshelves in November.
Are you ready to throw your hat in the ring? Here are your next steps:
2. Read our How To Submit page.
3. Prepare ONE document (.doc, .txt, .rtf or .pdf) with up to two poems. Make sure your name doesn't appear in the file or in the filename.
4. Head to and submit!
If you have additional questions, please check outour FAQs, or contact the series editor. We wish you the best of luck.
