Five Oaks Press is running its winter chapbook contest "Say Elves," which doesn't imply any particular theme, just an acknowledgement of the season and a phrase from a Frost poem we like. For this contest, we are soliciting chapbooks from 16-25 pages, due 1/2/16. 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 file titles.
For our spring chapbook contest, we chose one winner and 2 honorable mentions for publication. Five Oaks Press produces perfect-bound chapbooks (with ISBNs, available for sale on Amazon and elsewhere) 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. We nominate for Pushcart Prizes and any other awards we can find for our authors.
$12 fee to enter the contest. (We offer a free "open reading" period in late summer/early fall.)
Please go to our submission portal for submission details, our website for more info, or email us with any questions:
