The Colorado Prize for Poetry is an international poetry book manuscript contest organised by the Center for Literary Publishing at Colorado State University.
Manuscripts must be at least 48 pages but no more than 100 pages.
The theme and style are both open.
Manuscripts may consist of poems that have been published, but the manuscript as a whole must be unpublished.
There is a $25 entry fee, which includes a one-year subscription to Colorado Review.
The winning book will be published by the Center for Literary Publishing and distributed by the University Press of Colorado in the fall of 2017. The author will receive a $2,000 honorarium.
