Announcing the Allison Joseph Chapbook Series

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The Allison Joseph Chapbook Series seeks original, unpublished poetry manuscripts in English by BIPOC women writers.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.
