Becker Prize submissions now open

Manuscripts are now being considered for the 2013 Robin Becker Chapbook Prize. This year’s eligibility is limited to those writers without previous book or chapbook publication. The deadline to submit your writing is July 31; full guidelines here.

Rane Arroyo Prize: reading period is open

We are now accepting submissions for the Rane Arroyo Chapbook Prize. This series is co-edited by Ron Mohring and Eduardo C. Corral, and we’re extraordinarily happy to honor Rane’s memory with a chapbook series that honors his life and work. Full guidelines are here.

Robin Becker Prize submissions open

We are now accepting submissions for the 5th annual Robin Becker Chapbook Prize. Manuscripts must be postmarked or e-mailed by April 15–but since the 15th falls on a Sunday this year, the 16th will be just fine. Please help spread the word, and please email us (sevenkitchens at yahoo dot com) if you’d like a postcard!

ReBound Series is now open

We are now accepting submissions for the 2011 ReBound Series, which publishes out-of-print chapbooks in snazzy new editions. Current titles in the series are, in order of release, Notes from the Red Zone by Christina Pacosz, Ordinances by Naomi Lazard, Letter to Frank O’Hara by Steve Turtell, and Slow to Burn by Collin Kelley. Two additional titles will be released in November and December: No Matter by Louis McKee, and Midwinter Fires by Jeffery Beam.

Nominate a deserving chapbook today: full guidelines are here.

Robin Becker Chapbook – deadline extended

Well, it was bound to happen. Because your humble editor neglected to thoroughly proofread the posted guidelines, the deadline was listed as May 15. For this year only, we will therefore extend the submission deadline from April 15 to May 15. (You’re welcome.) For those of you scrambling to get manuscripts into the mail, relax.  For anyone who wants to take advantage of the (accidentally) extended deadline and submit a revised manuscript (not that there’s anything wrong with what you’ve already sent), that’s okay, too.
