PRESS NEWS - 2017 Chapbook Contest


Frog Hollow Press is proud to announce its third Chapbook Contest. Submissions accepted April 1 to June 30, 2017.

The contest is free to enter.

Send poems written in English — translations are welcome, but there must be an English translation.

Manuscripts should be from 12-40 pages in length, NOT including title page, acknowledgements, etc.

DO NOT include identifying data in the ms.
If you do, you will be disqualified. The Press prides itself on selecting contest manuscripts blind.

Do not submit your manuscript if you intend to republish the material within a year in a trade collection or other edition. This means “within a year” of our possible publication of your work, not from the time you send it to us for consideration in the contest. Don’t waste our time.

We are interested in receiving materials from all Canadians, including from the racialized/genderqueer/seniors/disabled. That there is no entry fee already signals that we are interested in submissions from the underclass.

Poets at all stages of career may submit.

A shortlist will be generated some time after the contest closes. Some of the poets on the shortlist will be approached for possible publication. Such publication is dependent on whether the poet and editor can develop a working relationship. The winner of the contest will be published by Frog Hollow Press.

Last year's contest was a great success and Frog Hollow Press had the privilege to encounter the writing of many new writers. We are excited to meet new people again, and to hopefully find out later that we fell in love again with people we already knew.

Keep in mind the above — send submissions to
carylpeters@telus.net
