Something to Hide My Face In, by Doug Paul Case, has been selected as the winner of the Robin Becker Chapbook Prize. Doug’s chapbook will be published in February, 2015.
The series will recommence next year, after its 2014 hiatus, with one major change to the submission guidelines: no reading fee. (Donations will, of course, be happily accepted.)
Please join us in congratulating Doug and thanking all the poets who shared their work with us.
Oh, yeah, it’s here: Catch & Release by D. Gilson, co-winner of the Robin Becker Chapbook Prize, officially comes out tomorrow but all the links are up and humming, so go get yours tonight!
