Submissions Policy
For our chapbook prize submissions, we ask writers to submit a manuscript of 30-40 pages (in .docx and .pdf formats), set in 12-point font in Times New Roman or equivalent. Each poem should begin on its own page. We do not accept hard copy submissions. While individual poems may have appeared in journals, magazines, etc., the manuscript as a whole must be previously unpublished. You may submit additional manuscripts for an additional reading fee for each. A limited number of free entries are available for poets for whom the reading fee presents a hardship. Simultaneous submissions are welcome. Please let us know if it is a simultaneous submission, and notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. If we accept your piece, please withdraw it from consideration elsewhere.
