The Foley Poetry Contest
America Media is sponsor of the annual Foley Poetry Award, given in honor of William T. Foley, M.D. Each entrant is asked to submit one poem of 30 lines or fewer for consideration. Only unpublished poems not under consideration elsewhere will be considered. Poems may address any topic. Submissions must be received between midnight ET on January 1 and 11:59 p.m. ET on March 31, 2016. Entrants may be submitted by Submittable or by postal mail to:
Foley Poetry Contest
106 W. 56th
New York, NY 11226
The winning poem will be announced in early June and published in the print edition of America. The cash prize is $1,000.
Each year approximately 1,000 poems are submitted. Our poetry editor and judge for the contest is Joseph Hoover, S.J. The winning poet will be required to sign a letter of agreement with America Media, publisher of America. Under this agreement, the poet will have the right to sell or republish his/her poem after it is published. It also gives to America Media the right to republish or allow others to republish the poem in any form.
Please submit no more than one poem. Since formatting is often critical to the integrity of a poem and its presentation, poems sent through Submittable are only accepted via .pdf. Questions can be directed to America's Poetry Editor, Br. Joseph Hoover, S.J. at firstname.lastname@example.org, who is the judge of the contest.
