CSU Poetry Center: Essay Collection Competition

BREVITY's Nonfiction Blog

eiffelThe Cleveland State University Poetry Center, although primarily known for its focus on contemporary poetry, also publishes in other genres, and this year CSU is inviting submissions to an Essay Collection Competition. The winner will have their book published as the first in a series that hopes to serve as a home for innovative, lyric, literary, or experimental nonfiction collections.

The press adds: “See Wayne Koestenbaum’s My 1980sand Other Essays, Eula Biss’ Notes From No Man’s Land, Maggie Nelson’s The Art of Cruelty, Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things To Me, Hilton Als’ White Girls, or Leslie Jamison’s The Empathy Exams as recent collections we’ve loved for their messy structures, exciting subject matter, serious research, and surprising, beautiful language.”

Judge: Wayne Koestenbaum

Submission Dates: January 1 – March 31

Winners will receive $1,000, publication, and a standard royalty contract.
