We are thrilled to announce the second of two new chapbook series launching this year, both for women writers.
The Allison Joseph Chapbook Series seeks original, unpublished poetry manuscripts in English by BIPOC women writers. All styles welcome. This series honors Allison Joseph, whose dedication as a writer, teacher, editor, and mentor has established her as an exemplary model of literary citizenship. We are especially proud to offer this series as part of our long-term commitment to publish women and other traditionally underrepresented voices, with the goal of making them a significant majority of our catalog.
Manuscripts will be considered annually during the month of May. NOTE: for the launch of this series, we will accept manuscripts until June 30. This year, Allison Joseph will serve as the final judge. Full guidelines are available here.
Once again, we will open the submission window for our Summer Kitchen Series from February 1 through February 14. From these manuscripts, we will select up to two titles for this year’s series, to be pubished (when else?) this coming summer. Full guidelines can be found here. We look forward to reading your work!
Let’s throw open the reading window for this year’s Summer Kitchen Series! You have two weeks–from now through February 14–to send in your chapbook manuscripts. We will select two manuscripts for inclusion in this year’s series, published this summer (hence the name).
What? That’s it! Guidelines are linked above. Dazzle us!
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’re looking forward to reading your nominations for the ReBound Series, which showcases out-of-print chapbooks in snazzy, new editions in order to bring them to a wider readership. This series depends on you, Dear Readers, so please take a moment to browse your bookshelves and let us know which out-of-print chapbooks you think deserve new life! The fall reading period is August 1 through September 15, and you can find full guidelines here.
