Hollis Summers Poetry Prize

Named for the distinguished poet who taught for many years at Ohio University and made Athens, Ohio, the subject of many of his poems, the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize invites writers to submit unpublished collections of original poems.

The competition is open to both those who have not published a book-length collection and those who have.

Congratulations to Idris Anderson, winner of the 2018 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize for Doubtful Sound, selected by Sherrod Santos.

Penumbra, by Michael Shewmaker — the 2017 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize winner — has just come out. “This is the best first book I’ve read in ages.” (J. D. McClatchy) · “Shewmaker’s artistry reminds me of the exacting felicities of the Donald Justice of The Summer Anniversaries and the Richard Wilbur of Advice to a Prophet.” (Rodney Jones)
