chapbook contest

Donna Marbach of Palettes & Quills is running a poetry chapbook contest, and I’m helping out. I probably won’t be reading anything, except maybe at the very end before we hand off the finalist manuscripts to the judge, Dorianne Laux. I’m basically just doing layout and design and helping to spread the word.

The winner of the contest gets $200 and 50 copies. Free copies are awesome because that’s where you’ll really make your money, especially when it’s that many copies.

The complete guidelines are here: http://www.palettesnquills.com/palettes__quills_2nd_biennial_p.htm

About the judging: The final judge is Dorianne Laux, author of Facts About the Moon (W. W. Norton, 2005), which was the recipient of the Oregon Book Award and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her other collections include Smoke (BOA Editions, 2000); What We Carry (BOA Editions, 1994), finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; and Awake (BOA Editions, 1990, and reissued by EWU Press, 2007), which was nominated for the San Francisco Bay AreaBook Critics Award for Poetry.

So please enter and tell your friends.//
