Chapbook Subs

Submission Period:

April 15th - May 31st

Accepting fiction, hybrid, and poetry chapbooks

Selections will be announced July 1st

Chapbook submissions open April 15th. We are considering fiction, hybrid, and poetry chapbooks. Two chapbooks will be selected, with the possibility of more depending.

As always, we’re looking to uplift marginalized voices but are happy to read all submissions. We love genre-bending works, material on the human experience, really anything that makes us see the world differently afterwards.

 

Most mags will charge $12 -$25 chapbook reading fees. We are offering five different payment options instead of setting a set price. Writers can pay $6, $10, $15, $20, or a $25 reading fee. We understand that these are hard times, and so some writers may only be able to afford $6 while others may be able to contribute more. Pay what you can and what you are comfortable with. We are a volunteer-run nonprofit, so the proceeds will go towards ordering books, hiring an artist, and all other costs associated with publishing, so if you're able to donate more, we would really appreciate it!

 

Requirements:

- Poetry - up to 20 pages / Fiction + Hybrid - up to 40 pages

- Double-spaced, 12pt, Times New Roman or Garamond.

- Include a cover sheet, acknowledgements, and table of contents (these don't count towards page count)

The cover sheet should include your name, address, and contact information (e-mail).

The acknowledgments needs to contain the list of journals or magazines who have published any of the pieces in the chapbook.
