another reason to love Lemony Snicket: he’s starting a poetry prize


Lemony Snicket Is Using His Netflix Money To Start A Poetry Prize – Claire Fallon – Huffington Post – 12/21/16

The press, he wrote, “will publish a single chapbook of poetry in early 2017, eight 4” x 5” pages, saddle-stitched, with a cardstock cover, hopefully designed by the noted illustrator Lisa Brown just as soon as I make her a martini and ask her.” (NB: Brown is also Handler’s wife.) The Per Diem winner will also receive a $1,000 prize and the opportunity to read with Handler at least once, “[i]f logistics permit.”

To apply, he requests poets send “eightish pages of previously unpublished poetry in English to Per Diem Press, 912 Cole Street #331, San Francisco California 94117” by Feb. 28.
