We’ve been reading some terrific poems submitted for this year’s Keystone Chapbook Series. Just a reminder that we are still accepting manuscripts through July 15 (Sunday), so get off that fence if you’ve been thinking about sending your chapbook. No reading fee. Full guidelines here. Send your best work!
Seven Kitchens Press seeks poems for its new Homage Series, annual anthologies celebrating the works of great LGBTQ poets. Our inaugural volume will focus on the Alexandrian poet C. P. Cavafy, known for his frank, unapologetic erotics and intimate evocations of Alexandria’s Hellenic past.
Submissions are open to all LGBTQ poets writing in English.
Poems should not simply refer to the life and/or subject matter of the poet’s work but should evoke the style, language, voice, and aesthetic of the poet’s work as contributors interpret it.
Poets may submit up to 3 poems. Previously published poems considered. Submit all poems in a single Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx) in an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of your message, please include a brief bio and a 2-3 sentence description of your approach to the chosen poet’s work.
Series editors: Terry Kirts and Ron Mohring.
Deadline: October 15, 2018.
We are (very) open: if you’re a poet with Pennsylvania connections, please send your manuscript to the Keystone Chapbook Series, our longest-running imprint. Co-editors Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring are looking forward to reading your work. We’ll consider chapbook manuscripts through July 15. Full guidelines are here.
The first dozen manuscripts have come in for the Robin Becker Chapbook Series, and it’s turning out to be a fun and varied read so far. Remember, there’s no reading fee and we’ll be considering manuscripts until May 15, so polish up your work and send it in! Details are here.
Update: Just ten days left to send in your manuscript! Dazzle us!

We are currently accepting submissions for the ReBound Series, which brings a wider readership to out-of-print chapbooks by printing them in snazzy, new, editions. Anyone may nominate an out-of-print chapbook, and you also have the opportunity to write an introductory preface to the new edition. Full guidelines are here. You can also browse (and order!) any of the titles in this important series.
