Poetry Book Prize and Honorarium

The FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize is awarded for the best full-length volume of poetry we publish in a calendar year. We notify the winner in December and announce here publicly in January. There is no fixed monetary award. Instead, the winning poet receives an honorarium of 20% of our total net royalties from all poetry books and chapbooks (but not Good Works projects) we sold online that year. The winning poet also serves as a judge for the prize the following year and receives a copy of all contending books.
