We are currently accepting submissions for our inaugural Chapbook Contest. Submissions will be read blind. Before you submit, please remove your name and any other identifying information from your manuscript. The chapbooks can be no longer than twenty-five pages. Any submissions longer than twenty-five pages will be automatically disqualified. The winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize, publication by New Plains Review Publishing Group, and five personal copies for the author. Upon publication, the author retains all rights to their poetry, but will not be financially compensated for any copies purchased after publication. The winner will be announced in August 2017. The deadline is 5th. There is a reading fee of $15 for this contest. The judges for this contest will be Dr. Iliana Rocha, Dr. Matt Hollrah, and Lisa Lewis.
