2023 Chapbook Contest       [NOW CLOSED]

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2023

Prize: 100 Copies of a perfect-bound chapbook

Reading Fee: $10.

Final Judge: Lana Hechtman Ayers [Lana's web site]

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.

28 to 40 pages of poetry, plus a table of contents and acknowledgements (if applicable).

Please number all your pages.

Please do not include any identifying information in the manuscript.

All entries must be submitted online via Submittable.

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

Let us know if you need additional info:
