Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize 2024

Established in 1981, the Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize is administered by the
University of Pittsburgh Press. Named in honor of Agnes Lynch Starrett, the Press’s
first director, the prize is awarded for a first full-length book of poems.

The prize carries a cash award of $5,000 and publication by the University of
Pittsburgh Press as part of the Pitt Poetry Series

Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize Submission Guidelines


The award is open to any poet writing in English who has not had a full-length book of poetry published previously. We define “full-length book” as a volume of 48 or more pages published in an edition of 500 or more copies. Books whose publication costs have been borne by their authors are excluded from this definition. University of Pittsburgh employees, former employees, current students, and those who have been students within the last three years are not eligible for the award.


Submit your Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize manuscript online! During the submission period (March 1 – April 30), simply go to our Submittable page, where you’ll find easy-to-follow instructions.

Manuscripts should be between 48 and 100 pages. Please also include your curriculum vitae.

The most up-to-date submission guidelines can be found on our Submittable page during the open submission period.


Each manuscript must be accompanied by a $25.00 entry fee, paid through Submittable at the time of your submission.


Manuscripts being considered by other publishers are allowed, but if a manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere, please withdraw your manuscript through Submittable.


Results will be announced in the fall on our website and social media feeds, and in major poetry and writing magazines once a winner has been chosen.
