Laura Eppinger -Eye on New Jersey

Rust by Laura Eppinger

Rust by Laura Eppinger

The Camel Saloon has just posted a new photograph exhibit, – Laura Eppinger -Eye on New Jersey

From Russell Streur of The Camel Saloon:

New Jersey is a contradiction.  Known as the Garden State, it is the only state in the country where every county is classified as a metropolitan area.  It ranks first in population density even though nearly a quarter of its area is preserved as open space.   The state ranks high in both chemical manufacture and blueberry production.   Trenton’s claim as the car theft capital of the country is false; the state’s claim to most diners is easier to swallow.  Outside of the colleges and the boardwalks, it can be a gritty place.

The Saloon’s friend Laura Eppinger lives and writes in New Jersey, and she takes a hard look at the place.  She has generously shared her views with the tavern, and I am delighted to invite all the patrons to see her work here: http://camelsaloonnewjersey.blogspot.com/

 

THE ELEVENTH ANNUAL DOGFISH HEAD POETRY PRIZE IS UNDERWAY!

From David Kozinski

Submission Guidelines for the Eleventh Annual Dogfish Head Poetry Prize

 The Eleventh Annual Dogfish Head Poetry Prize for the winning book-length manuscript by a poet residing in the Mid-Atlantic states (DE, MD, VA, PA, NJ, NY, WVA, and NC) will consist of $500, two cases of Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Beer*, book publication by Broadkill River Press,  and 10 copies of the book (in lieu of royalties).

The rules are: Manuscripts must be received by midnight, September 2, 2013 (Labor Day).  Manuscripts received after Labor Day will not be considered.  Eligible poets must reside in the above listed states and be twenty-one years of age or older by the date of the award. *  The manuscript is to be submitted electronically in one MS Word document attachment.  Send to Prize co-ordinator Linda Blaskey at dogfishheadpoetryprize@earthlink.net.  Snail mail submissions will not be accepted.

Send two title pages with each submission: one with the title of the manuscript, your name, address, phone numbers and e-mail address; the second with just the manuscript title.   No manuscript is to have any author-identifying information other than the one title page and will be rejected if it does.   The manuscript should have an acknowledgement page of poems previously published, and in which publications and/or web-sites they appeared.  Judging is blind and double-tiered.

The manuscript must be book-length (between 48 and seventy eight pages of original work – no translations) and no more than roughly  thirty lines to a page, including the poem’s title and two line-spaces between the title and the body of the poem.  A poem may be more than one page.  The book’s dimensions will be 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches, with a minimum of half-inch side margins, and printed in 12 point type, so avoid very long lines.

The award will be presented to the poet on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at the Dogfish Head Brewpub and Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  The winner must agree to attend this event and to read from their winning book at a reception honoring the winner.  The prize will be officially awarded by Sam Calagione, Founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Distillery, or by another company official.

The author of the winning manuscript also agrees to provide, within ten days of notification, a color head-shot photograph for the back cover and a dedication for the interior of the book.  The winner agrees to travel to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware at the winner’s expense for awarding of the prize.   Dogfish Head will provide the winner one night’s lodging in Rehoboth Beach where Dogfish Rehoboth Brew Pub and Restaurant is located.

Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales retains the right to use any of the winning work in promotional materials.
