The Philip Levine Prize in Poetry

New!

After being on hiatus for the 2003-2004 academic year, the Levine Prize in Poetry returns in 2005. The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2005. See the "For More Information..." section below for more details.

Anhinga Press is proud to co-sponsor The Philip Levine Prize in Poetry. Initiated by California State University, Fresno, the Levine Prize is a new annual book contest, open to all poets (except current or former students or faculty of CSU/Fresno), which currently offers a $1,500 prize, publication, and distribution by Anhinga Press. The winning poet also receives 25 free author copies of the book.

In its inaugural year (2001), the contest's final judge was Philip Levine. 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.

2002 Winner Announced

The second poet selected by Philip Levine for the Levine Prize in Poetry is Steven Gehrke, for his The Pyramids of Malpighi. Anhinga Press will release Gehrke's book in 2004.

Previous Winners

Levine selected Fleda Brown's manuscript Breathing In, Breathing Out, as the 2001 winner of the Philip Levine Prize in Poetry. Breathing in, Breathing Out was published in early 2003.
