About the competition
Each year we select a poet to receive The James Dickey Prize for Poetry. The award is named in honor of James Dickey, who we are proud to say served on our Advisory Board. Dickey inspired and nurtured many poets, and we offer the award in his spirit. The contest winner receives $1,000, and the winning poems are published in an issue of Five Points.
Every year, submissions are accepted electronically September 1 through December 1. We do not accept manuscripts for consideration sent via the post office or special carrier.
- Send three previously unpublished poems no more than fifty lines each.
- Make sure your file is in ONE of the following formats:
- .PDF (Adobe Acrobat)
- .DOC or .DOCX (Microsoft Word)
- The entry fee includes a one-year subscription
- The winner will be announced on the Five Points website.
