The Yeats
Poetry Prize

Each year, we award cash and honorary prizes for poems entered in this contest. 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.
