[caption id="attachment_1020" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="A. Poulin, Jr. BOA Founder."][/caption] BOA is now accepting entries for the 10th Annual A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize contest. The prize is awarded to honor a poet's first book, while also honoring the late founder of BOA Editions, Ltd. This year's distinguished final judge is Jane Hirshfield. Read all about the contest here [A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize] Some poets are "early adopters" who submit their manuscripts early. Some are "deadliners" who sprint to the post office and shove their envelopes into the postal worker's hands at the last minute. Which are you? How about your poet friends? Submissions for the contest opened on August 1st and we now have a stack of "early adopter" manuscripts here in the office. So here's how today's fun challenge will go: 1) Guess how many Poulin Prize submissions we've received as of today. 2) Post your guess in the Comment box on BOA's Facebook page below the note about this contest. (If you're not a Facebook friend yet... now's the time!) 3) The first correct answer will receive free copies of our last two Poulin Prize-winning books: Beautiful in the Mouth by Keetje Kuipers and Awayward by Jennifer Kronovet. 4) We will notify you if you win the contest and also name you as winner on our Facebook page. Don't be a "deadliner" with your guess or an "early adopter" will swoop in and win the prize! Good luck!
