Our reading period has officially opened. We eagerly await to read your work. Here are the guidelines:
  • Chapbooks should be sent to as either a .doc or .pdf attachment (the latter preferred). In the subject of the email, please put, in all caps, your last name, your first name, and the title of the project (i.e. ASHBERY JOHN SOME TREES). If you choose to do so, include a short cover letter as the body of your email; this should include a small bio and restrained publication history—please, no "explanations" of the work or statements of purpose.
  • Attachments should have a cover page, then an acknowledgements page (if the poems have appeared elsewhere), then the content.
  • Chapbook should be somewhere between 10-40 pages in length. If your project falls on the outside of these limits, email us first before submitting.
  • If your chapbook is under consideration by another press, please make this explicit in your submission and notify us if it is accepted elsewhere.
  • Our reading period will remain open until August 1st. Unsolicited work after this time will not be considered.
Thanks for allowing us the privilege to read you manuscripts—and tell your friends!
