The Philip Levine Prize in Poetry

2013 Levine Prize Winner announced

Anhinga Press is proud to co-sponsor the Philip Levine Prize in Poetry. Initiated by California State University, Fresno, the Levine Prize is an annual book contest, open to all poets (except current or former students or faculty of CSU/Fresno); effective with the 2009 award, it offers a $2,000 prize, with publication and distribution of the winning manuscript by Anhinga Press. The winning poet also receives 25 free author copies of the book.

Note: Anhinga Press does not administer the Levine Prize; we do not accept or read submissions for it. We merely publish the winning title. The actual reading and judging is established by California State University, Fresno. Please do not send ANY manuscripts for the Levine Prize to Anhinga Press. Guidelines for the Levine Prize -- including reading periods, mailing address, and so on -- can be found here, at the CSU/Fresno site.

In its inaugural year (2001), the contest's final judge was Philip Levine himself. Levine, who taught at California State University, Fresno for many years, is one of the best known and most highly-honored of all living American poets. He has published more than 17 books of poems, as well as several volumes of translations, essays, and a memoir. His list of honors includes two National Book Awards, two National Book Critics Circle Awards, the American Book Award, the Ruth Lily Poetry Prize for Distinguished Poetic Achievement, and the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

Details about the 2014 contest will be posted here when they become available.
