October 2017 Update

We’re a little late in letting everyone know to stop sending chapbook manuscripts.  The guidelines were pretty clear but, alas, we’re still receiving submissions.  All told, this year was a modest increase over previous years’ totals, which had been pretty consistent.  Now the fun part!  I want to thank everyone for their submissions.  We’re hoping to have some idea of finalists by mid-December.  Keep checking the website, as we likely won’t be sending personal “regrets” to everyone.

Next up is an off-cycle chapbook from E. Kristin Anderson, entitled 17 Seventeen XVII.  It’s her second chapbook of found poetry with the press.  (Three guesses on her source material.)  Expect that the first week of December.

The 2017/2018 season will open at AWP with our “winning” chapbook.  We’re co-hosting an offsite reading with Anhinga Press on Thursday night a few blocks away from the convention center.  More details, including readers, to be announced later.
