Debut Series Chapbook Contest: Entries accepted here.

*** *** *** *** *** ***

– Manuscripts may be between 16 – 24 pages.

– Please include a title page with ONLY the title, a table of contents, and an acknowledgements page (not included in page count).

This contest is open only to writers who have not yet published a full-length manuscript or chapbook in any genre.

– Open to poetry, fiction, memoir, and mixed- or hybrid-genre works (prose poems, flash fiction, lyrical short-shorts, a short story sandwiched between a dozen poems, one long-ish short story, 24 pages of poems, and any other combination that might be missing in this list).

– Thematically-linked works are encouraged, but not required. Quality is the only criteria.

– Collection as a whole must be unpublished, but individual publications are fine.

– Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please withdraw it immediately if someone else snatches up your amazing work before we do.

– Prize: 50 hand-bound copies of your winning chapbook, to use however you’d like (sell them, give them away, make a modern art installation in your living room, etc.) Paper Nautilus will be selling limited additional copies through our website or at literary events (for which you’ll receive 10% royalties on any sold), but the rest are yours.

– Entry fee: $5, payable through Submittable. We also have an $8 option that comes with a random issue of PN (which is the normal retail price of a PN issue). If this fee is an economic hardship to an eligible submitter, please contact us, and we will do our best to work with you.

– Entry period: February 17th – May 31th, 2017.

– Expected announcement of winner: (approximately) September 1st, 2017.

– Expected date of publication: (approximately) March 2018.

– Contest entries will be judged by Lisa Mangini, Paper Nautilus Editor in Chief

    Hi. Would like to enter the Debut Series Chapbook Contest through Submittable, but for the life of me I can’t find a link to Submittable ion the page. Probably, I’m missing it. Please direct me to the right spot. Thanks.
