2014 Chapbook Contest             

Postmark Deadline: November 30, 2014

Prize: 100 Copies of a perfect-bound chapbook

Reading Fee: $20, checks payable to Concrete Wolf.

Final Judge: Nancy Pagh

Author of No Sweeter Fat

Friends, family, former or current students of the Judge or the Editor are ineligible for the contest.

Submission Guidelines

We prefer chapbooks that have a theme, either obvious (i.e. chapbook about a divorce) or understated (i.e. all the poems mention the color blue). We like a collection that feels more like a whole than a sampling of work. We have no preference as to formal or free verse.

20 to 26 pages of poetry, plus a table of contents and acknowledgements (if applicable).

Please number all your pages.

Include 2 cover sheets, one with title, author information (including email and phone), and one just with the title.

Reading Fee: $20, checks payable to Concrete Wolf.

SASE for results only. Manuscripts cannot be returned.

Include a 10 by 12 postage-paid envelope stamped with $2.50 postage, if you'd like a copy of the winning chapbook.

Simultaneous and multiple submissions okay. Notify us by email if you need to remove your chapbook from consideration.

Or, pay the contest fee with paypal, then email the manuscript as a Word.doc file or .rtf file to concretewolf@yahoo.com.

Winner will be announced in March 2015 and published Fall 2015.

Let us know if you need additional info: concretewolf@yahoo.com
