2022 Grayson Books Chapbook Contest

  Prize: $500, publication of chapbook and 50 copies
  Deadline: January 31, 2022
  Reading fee: $20

Submit: 16-34 pages of poetry. Do not place identifying information on your chapbook manuscript. Put it in the submission form instead.

Include a Contents page. A page of acknowledgments of previously published poems may be included; this is not required.

Simultaneous submissions are permissible if we are notified immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Multiple submissions are fine, as long as each is accompanied by a reading fee.

 This year's judge, Steve Straight, has published several poetry collections, including The Almanac, The Water Carrier, and a chapbook called Some Assembly Required. He has given workshops on writing in many areas of the United States and in Ireland. He was named a Distinguished Advocate for the Arts by the Connecticut Commission on the Arts.
