Annual Chapbook Contest

We seek cohesive manuscripts that deal in hybrid, cross-, multi-, and post-genre approaches. We are interested specifically in project-based work; while pieces within the manuscript may be disparate, they should resonate as a whole.

Fine print:

  • Manuscripts should be 16-32 pages

  • Collaborative manuscripts are okay
  • Multiple submissions are fine if submitted separately with a reading fee for each
