The Chapbook is temporarily closed to submissions. Please check back later.

Manuscripts should be typed and consist of around 20 pages. Please include bios and acknowledgements of previously published work. Manuscripts will be recycled. Rejections and acceptance letters will be sent via email, so authors should include an email address on the title page. Please also include your telephone number. All chapbook submissions should be sent to:

Manuscripts that contain previously published poems, stories, and plays are welcome, but only if authors retain the full rights to their work. The same is true for previously published small press chapbooks, if the work has been out of print for 5 or more years.

All rights revert to individual authors and artists upon publication.

The Chapbook welcomes art submissions, reviews of chapbooks, and ads for chapbook publishers and their individual publications. Reviews, ads, and art submissions may be sent to
