All submissions must be received between April 1, 2018 and June 1, 2018. We are looking for a chapbook-length collection of poems, ranging from 25 pages to 35 pages, not including title page, table of contents, etc.
Please include a cover letter with name, physical address, email address, and manuscript title in your submission.
In addition to the publication of the chapbook, the contest winner will be invited to give a reading at Northwest Missouri State University as part of the University’s Visiting Writers Series. Travel expenses, lodging and an honorarium of $250 will be provided.
Last year's co-winners, Arts Grant by Frank Montesonti and rhi(n.)oceros by C.D. DyVanc, are available for purchase below. We encourage all submitters to consider buying a copy of each before submitting to get a feel for our aesthetic. You can purchase both chapbooks here before submitting.
The reading fee entitles you to a one year subscription to The Laurel Review. Subscription will be enacted for the address provided in the Submittable form.
