We are thrilled to announce the first of two new chapbook series launching this year, both for women writers.
The A.V. Christie Chapbook Series seeks original, unpublished poetry manuscripts by women writers over the age of 50. This series honors the vision of poet & teacher A.V. Christie and is being launched in 2022 thanks to the generous donations of A.V.’s friends and colleagues. We are especially proud to offer this series in her memory 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 February. This year, Nathalie Anderson will serve as the final judge. Full guidelines are available here.
