Top 2 Chapbook Contest FAQs

Our 2015 chapbook competition is currently open for submissions and will be until July 31. You can find all the basic information about the contest (our judge, the prizes, etc) on this flyer here.

In addition to that info, here are the top 2 FAQs we've been asked in the last month or so:

1) Do you accept simultaneous submissions?

Answer: Yes! Unlike our policy for regular submissions (no simultaneous submissions allowed), we are happy to consider simultaneous submissions for our chapbook contest—provided you let us know immediately if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere by emailing us or withdrawing your submission on Submittable.

2) What if some of the poems in my chapscript are previously published, or are under consideration elsewhere?

Answer: As long as more than 50% (the majority) of the poems in your manuscript have not been previously published, you're good! If you win the contest, you'll have the chance to acknowledge where the previously published poems first appeared. You are welcome to include that information at the beginning or end of your submission as well.
