CHAPBOOK CONTEST: The Clarinda Harriss Poetry Prize

09/01/2009
PLEASE NOTE: The Harriss Poetry Prize has been on a three-year hiatus, but the next deadline for submissions will be April 1, 2018.

Prize money for the Harriss Poetry Prize is $500 and, in addition to publication, the winner receives 50 gratis copies! The winner receives a cash prize, free copies, wholesale distribution through both Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and on-line retail pages at Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and other sources.

Launched in 2009, the Harriss Poetry Prize is named in honor of Clarinda Harriss, eminent Baltimore poet, publisher, and professor of English at Towson University.  Harriss, educated at Johns Hopkins University and Goucher College, is a widely published, award-winning poet and, off campus, serves as editor/director of BrickHouse Books, Inc., Maryland’s oldest literary press.
