Established in 2009, the FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize is awarded for the best full-length volume of poetry published by the press in a given year. The winning poet receives an honorarium—a percentage of the press’s total online book, chapbook, and ebook sales in the year of publication—
Judges for the 2013 FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize were the 2012 prize winner, poet Richard Carr (for Dead Wendy), and editors Diane Kistner, David Chorlton, Jon Pineda, and Robert S. King of FutureCycle Press. The prize-winning book was selected from twelve full-length poetry books published by the press in 2013.
To celebrate the award, Joan Colby: Selected Poems is the press's Goodreads Giveaway title for January. Visitors to the FutureCycle Press web site can enter to win a paperback copy from the widget on the right-hand side of the home page. The Kindle edition is also one of the press's Free Kindle Saturdays titles during the month of January.
