Keystone Chapbook co-winners selected

Please join us in congratulating the co-winners of the 2011 Keystone Chapbook Prize: Dave Bonta and William Woolfitt. This year’s guest judge, Sascha Feinstein, selected Bonta’s Breakdown: Banjo Poems as the winning manuscript among poets with previous book or chapbook publication. Of the manuscripts by new writers (no previous book or chapbook publication), Feinstein selected Woolfitt’s The Salvager’s Arts.

Breakdown: Banjo Poems will be published in May of 2012 as #9 in the Keystone Chapbook Series. The Salvager’s Arts will be published in June as #10 in the series. Each writer will receive fifty copies of his chapbook.

Our thanks to everyone who supported the series again this year, and special thanks to Sascha for judging. The reading period for next year’s Keystone Chapbook Prize will be July 1 through August 15.

Keystone reading period closes tonight

How did August 15th creep up on us so quickly? Today’s the deadline to submit work in consideration for the Keystone Chapbook Prize, which will be judged this year by the fabulous Sascha Feinstein. If you’re sending by e-mail, you still have time (a little over four hours here in my time zone); if you haven’t posted your snailmail manuscript by midnight tonight, it’s officially too late.

Note that I said “officially”: folks, I’m a teddy bear. Send the manuscript tomorrow or even Wednesday with a creative note of apology and we’re perfectly happy to accept it. So please don’t panic on our account.

Oh–the guidelines are here.
