Knowing Is a Branching Trail: Launch Event Recording, Excerpt, Birdy Reminder

Earlier this autumn, 2021 Birdy Poetry Prize Winner Alison Hicks officially launched her Meadowlark book, Knowing Is a Branching Trail. With about a month left to submit to the 2022 Birdy Poetry Prize, we thought watching Alison read and discuss her poems from the book (plus a bonus unpublished poem) in this recording of her launch event might inspire you to submit your own manuscript to the contest. Check out the video below, the contest information below that, as well as the links in this text, to enjoyably and easily find everything you need to know. 

Birdy Poetry Prize Details 

The winner of the contest will receive $1,000 cash and publication by Meadowlark Books, including 50 copies of the completed book. All entries will be considered for standard Meadowlark Books publishing contract offers, as well. Meadowlark welcomes entries from across the U.S. 

Full-length poetry manuscripts (55 page minimum, 90+ pages preferred) will be considered. Poems may be previously published in journals and/or anthologies, but not in full-length, single-author volumes. Poets are eligible to enter, regardless of publishing history. Previous winners are NOT eligible to enter.

Previous winners and finalists include:

Submission Deadline: Dec. 1

Submission Fee: $25

We look forward to reading this year's submissions! For more information, or to submit a manuscript, visit birdypoetryprize.com.
