Submit 48-80 pages of original poetry in English not previously published in book form (individual poems may have been previously published in journals, anthologies, and chapbooks). $25 entry fee required.

Manuscripts may be submitted either electronically or by mail. View Submission Guidelines.

Book Awards

CPR offers two (2) book awards each calendar year, the Editors’ Prize in spring and the Cider Press Review Book Award in fall.  Both contests judge manuscripts blindly.  Authors are requested to remove all contact information from their manuscript submissions. Any author failing to remove contact information from their manuscripts forfeits their anonymity but is otherwise judged identically to any other entrant.

The annual Cider Press Review Editors’ Prize offers a $1,000 prize, publication, and 25 author’s copies of an author’s first or second book length collection of poetry. Author receives a standard publishing contract. Initial print run is not less than 1,000 copies. Cider Press accepts submissions for the Editors Prize between April 1 and June 30 annually.

The winner is selected by the editors of Cider Press Review.
