MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED!
BUT HERE IS THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR OUR:
ANNUAL POETRY CHAPBOOK CONTEST
Monkey Puzzle Press announces its Annual Poetry Chapbook Competition for an unpublished manuscript of poetry between 15 – 38 pages in length.
The winner will receive a $300 cash award, chapbook and eBook publication, and twenty-five free copies of the printed chapbook. Prizes will be awarded upon publication. All finalists will be considered for publication.
The theme for this year’s competition is The Vulnerable Page. We are looking for courageous writers willing to be brutally honest with themselves, their readers and with the page. We want writing that takes risks with form, content and punctuation to more clearly communicate and connect with the reader. For examples of chapbooks with a similar aesthetic, click below:
