The Yeats

Poetry Prize


Each year the Society awards cash and honorary prizes for poems in any style entered during the open submissions period. Awards are presented in April at the Union Square Barnes & Noble (New York City). For guidelines, deadlines, and judges' reports, click here.


For many years, the Society has given two prestigious awards: the Yeats Poetry Prize to recognize literary achievement, and the M.L Rosenthal Award to recognize scholarly contributions to Yeats Studies.
