2. Poems may be on any theme or subject, but must be original and not previously published. Begin each poem on a new page, use 12-point font, and single spacing.
3. First prize is $750, finalists are awarded $250. Poems will be published in Vallum magazine and on Vallum’s website. Honourable mentions may be selected and published but are not eligible for cash prizes.
4. You may submit more than once.
5. Cover letters and poems must be submitted as two separate documents. The document with your poems should not include any autobiographical information, as this contest is judged blind.
