 Gazing Grain Press Inclusive Feminist Chapbook Contest

About: An inclusive feminist poetry & hybrid chapbook contest edited by George Mason University MFA alumni and sponsored by the Fall for the Book literary festival. This contest is open to feminists of all genders and sexualities and is meant to promote socially conscious poetry and hybrid writing to a wide audience. We adhere to no one “definition” of feminism—we encourage a broad and diverse range of approaches. Challenge us!

Reading Period: March 15-June 1, 2014.

Prize: Publication, 10% of print run, and invitation to read at the 2014 Fall for the Book literary festival in Fairfax, VA (accommodation and travel within the continental United States will be paid).

Runners-up and/or designated finalists will also be invited to receive recognition at the event. Contest finalists will be considered for publication in the Gazing Grain Press miniature series of limited-run, handmade artist books.

Judge: Dawn Lundy Martin

POETRY AND HYBRID TEXT MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

1. This competition is open to all poets writing in English who have no affiliation with the judge, the editors, or the George Mason University MFA program.

2. The author’s name should not appear anywhere in the manuscript itself. Include identifying information only where it is asked for in the submit form. Editors will read submissions blind.

3. Manuscripts must be between 15 and 25 pages (not including front and back matter), numbered accordingly, with only one poem per page. Every manuscript should include a title page, a table of contents, and an acknowledgements page, if applicable.

4. The manuscript should not have been previously published in any complete form; however, previously published individual poems are acceptable. We also accept simultaneous submissions. Notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are accepted, with a separate reading fee for each manuscript.

5. Submit via our online submission manager.

6. The winner will be selected in early July, and the book will be published in September. The winner will be honored with a reading and reception at the Fall for the Book literary festival in Fairfax, VA (September 11 to 18, 2014).

Manuscripts are read by the editors, who will select a set of finalists to send to the judge for winner selection.
