Event Details

Chapbooks should be between 20-40 pages. Manuscripts should include a title page, table of contents, and a list of acknowledgments for previously published poems. Individual poems from the manuscript may have been published previously in magazines but not books or chapbooks. The collection as a whole must be unpublished.

Simultaneous submissions are permitted. Please let us know immediately if your manuscript is accepted by another publisher while under our consideration. We do not accept translations.

This reading period is open only to traditionally marginalized writers. In your cover letter, please spend a few sentences discussing how your marginalization relates to your writing.

Current students, former students, former classmates, or friends of Small Harbor Publishing, Harbor Editions, or Harbor Review staff are disqualified from sending work.

All entries will be read by Harbor Editions staff.

There is no submission fee.

Include in your cover letter your name, contact information, and a brief bio. Attach your manuscript as a word or pdf attachment. Please use the title of your chapbook as your document name.

Harbor Editions will publish 1-2 books from the open reading period. Those selected will receive a standard publishing contract and 20 copies of their book. All entrants will be notified about the status of their submission after the submission period.
