Each academic year, Slash Pine Press publishes two to four chapbooks in limited runs of 125 copies. The reading period is now open for our poetry chapbook series. We are looking for poetry chapbook manuscripts to publish in fall 2015.
DEADLINE: July 15, 2015
All manuscripts receive a blind reading. The author’s name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript or in the title of file (on Submittable blind readers can still see the name of the file). Those manuscripts that include the author's name will be disqualified.
Please include your name and full contact information only in the “cover letter” section of the submission page. Authors may also list acknowledgments on the manuscript if desired.
Simultaneous submissions are OK, but no multiple submissions will be accepted.
Manuscripts should be between 15-25 pages, not counting the title page, acknowledgment page, table of contents, etc.
Collaborations are OK, but only by two authors.
The accepted manuscript will be determined by the editors and interns of Slash Pine Press. Decisions will be announced in September 2015.
The $5 reading fee will go to printing and administrative fees. The author of the accepted manuscript will receive 15 copies as well as the option to buy additional copies at a reduced cost.
Faculty, students, and graduates of the University of Alabama are not eligible for publication.
As always, Slash Pine books are carefully designed and hand bound. To see examples of the books Slash Pine has published in the past, go to Slashpinepress.com.
