NavWorks Press is a brand new imprint that I have worked on and dreamed about for six years. I have a book deal with a printer to make this contest anthology happen under my new imprint, it will have an ISBN and be listed with all the major wholesalers and retailers. I intend the [b]Pride In Poetry Prize[/b] to become an annual prize and publication featuring new poets, especially, but also strengthened by some veteran poets as well. This anthology will not contain rubbish, poor work, or lousy poetry. Although I am eager to help new poets gain exposure, I will not do so at the expense of quality. This will be a quality paperback work available at standard retail prices. An ad similar to this will appear in such magazines as [i]Poets and Writers[/i] and [i]The Writer[/i].
Please help pass the word along about this contest.
