Call for short poetry collections for 2018 Chapbooks!

Five chapbooks to be published in last half of 2018

Our final project for 2018 will be the publication of a series of up to five chapbooks of new poetry.

These will be issued in a uniform edition and published in the last quarter of 2018.
Collections may include some previously published poems, but should emphasize new, unpublished work. We expect collections to be between 10 and 20 poems in length, but this is a guideline only. The chapbooks are expected to contain around 20 ~ 40 pages of text.

Collections should be emailed as an attachment as
a single file in Word, PDF, or Open Document format. The file extensions allowed are .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .odt.
