There’s just one day left to enter your chapbook in consideration for the Keystone Chapbook Prize. Full details are here.
We’re very excited to announce the co-winners of the 2015 Keystone Chapbook Prize: “R” by Tammy Robacker of Philomath, Oregon, and “Cruel Folklore” by Eric Schwerer of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Both manuscripts will be published in early spring of 2016.
Thanks so much to our guest judge, Deirdre O’Connor. Thank you, as well, to folks who made donations–we truly appreciate your support of this series.
After a long delay (sorry, sorry), we’re very happy to announce the co-winners of the 2012 Keystone Chapbook Prize. Guest judge Brent Goodman has selected Field Trip to the Underworld by Hayden Saunier as the winner among writers with previous book publication; Marjorie Maddox’s Recently Young in a People Gone Old was the runner-up. Among writers with no previous book publication, Brent selected Wooden Boys by Michael Hurley; Katherine Fallon’s The Tooth-Maker’s Daughter was the runner-up.
The winning chapbooks will be published next spring. Congratulations to all the finalists–it was a pleasure to read work at such a consistently high level.
Get those manuscripts ready: the reading period for this year’s Keystone Chapbook Prize opens tomorrow, July 1. Writers eligible for the Keystone Chapbook Prize include those who live in or have lived in Pennsylvania, those who were born here, and those who are writing with some Pennsylvania connection in their work. See full guidelines here, and good luck!
