Submissions are now being accepted for Five Oaks Press' "Our Wish For Blue" poetry chapbook contest, 16-25 pages, due 7/31/15. We read blind (meaning, we don't want to know your name during our selection process), so please remove all identifiers from your manuscripts and titles.
For our spring chapbook contest, we chose one winner (Jia Oak Baker's Well Enough to Travel, forthcoming) and 2 honorable mentions for publication. Five Oaks Press produces perfect-bound chapbooks and offers reading opportunities for our authors, such as hosting book launches for authors within driving distance, and also organizing off-site events at the AWP conference.
There is no special theme for the contest; we've named each of our contests with a phrase from a Robert Frost poem that roughly corresponds to the season in which the contest is being held. $12 fee to enter a contest, but we offer a free "open reading" period in the fall.
