Airlie Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The annual Airlie Prize opens for submissions on January 1, with a deadline in March. Any poet writing in English is eligible to enter, regardless of place of residence. The winner receives book publication in the fall of the following year, and a $1000 prize.

Airlie Press is a nonprofit poetry collective based in and around Portland, Oregon. During our summer submission period, we seek manuscripts from Pacific Northwest poets who are willing and able to commit to a three-year term of doing the shared work of running a collective press. Most important editorial decisions are made by consensus. Starting in 2017, Airlie Press will accept submissions from poets previously published by Airlie. In 2017, poets published before 2014 are encouraged to submit a manuscript during our summer submission period. Returning poets must commit to a standard three-year agreement.
