Sunday Submissions: Willis Barnstone Translation Prize

“Postmark deadline” is December 1. The prize, which is run out of   The Evansville Review   at the University of Evansville, requests submissions of “unpublished poetry translations from any language and time period (ancient to contemporary). In either case, organizers request that you attach the translated copy to a copy of the original, which identifies the original poet. The submission guidelines also note that,   in the event that the judge selects more than one winner, “the prize money will be divided equally among the winners.”
