Poets living within 75 driving miles of the U.S. Capitol (including the District of Columbia, the Baltimore area and Northern Virginia) are invited to submit a poetry manuscript. The manuscript should be 50-70 pages, single or 1-1/2 spaced. The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript. The title page should contain the title only. A separate page for acknowledgments may be included for poems previously published in journals and anthologies.
