Snyder Prize Deadline

April 28, 2011

The Richard Snyder Publication Prize deadline is fast approaching! Our postmark deadline is April 30, but if you need a few days to finalize that winning manuscript, we’ll continue to take your submissions through the first part of May.

This poetry book series honors the memory of Richard Snyder (1925-1986), poet, fiction writer, playwright, and long-time professor of English at Ashland University. He served for fifteen years as English department chair, and in 1969 co-founded and served as co-editor of the Ashland Poetry Press. In selecting manuscripts for this series, Ashland Poetry Press editors keep in mind Snyder’s tenacious dedication to craftsmanship and thematic integrity.

The Snyder Prize judge for the 2011 contest is Natasha Trethewey.
