Library of Congress seeks nominations for the Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt Poetry Prize

The Library of Congress is seeking nominations from publishers for the $10,000 Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry, which will be presented in the fall of 2007. Applications must be submitted no later than July 9. A large mailing of announcements, along with rules and application forms, will go out to publishers from the Library's Poetry and Literature Center. The prize, which is given biennially, is for the 2006 award. Since the last award in 2004, the eligibility criteria have been amended. The 2006 prize will be given to an American poet for the best book published during the previous two years, 2004-2005, or for lifetime achievement in poetry
