We are not accepting manuscripts or queries for consideration at this time. Please do not mail or email unsolicited manuscripts to the Press outside of the specified reading periods. Upcoming reading periods and contests will be announced here.

 

ANNUAL SHORT SHORT CHAPBOOK CONTEST

Our 11th Annual Short Short Chapbook Contest submission period begins November 1 and ends December 1, 2016. Our 2016 judge will be Amelia Gray. The winner will have his/her chapbook published in summer 2017, with an introduction by the contest judge. During the submission period, please submit your 25–40 page double-spaced manuscript of short short stories (fiction or nonfiction) each under 1000 words to our Submittable contest site with a $10 reading fee. Multiple entries from the same author are acceptable as long as each is accompanied with a separate fee.

Individual pieces in your manuscript may have appeared in journals, both in print and online, as long as the entire collection itself is unpublished. Do not put your name anywhere on the manuscript itself as submissions will be judged blind. Please be sure your name and contact information are correct in the submission program when you submit your manuscript, so we can contact you once a winner has been chosen.

Please note that current and former students, family members, and close personal friends of the judge are not eligible to submit.

Examples of previous winners can be viewed and purchased through our catalog page.
