Are you a poet or publishing house that is interested in sharing your poetry on our app? We'd love to hear from you! Please send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beginning in 2022, we've begun awarding an annual Poesie poetry prize. The prize is entirely funded by and voted on by subscribers to Poesie. All (living) poets featured in the past year are eligible for the prize. The amount of the prize varies by year, depending on our annual revenue from subscribers. There are no strings attached - the prize money is sent directly to the poet or representative publisher!
2022: Elizabeth Bradfield, whose collection Interpretive Work (Red Hen Press, 2008) was featured in June 2022. This year's award prize was $7,500.
Learn more about Elizabeth Bradfield at her website, and view information about the book over at Red Hen Press.
Poets: In order to participate in our poetry prize, we'll need to feature your work on the Poesie app. First, we'll sign a contract with your publisher to obtain permissions for adding your poems to our app. Once you've been featured on our app, you'll automatically be included in the voting options for that year's prize.
Readers: All Poesie subscribers are allowed to vote in our poetry prize! This past year, voting was held during the month of September and the winner was announced in October. Each voter was allowed to vote for up to 3 of their books featured in the past year.
