In Spring 2018 C&R Press will publish 1-3 chapbooks of poetry, short stories or other types of literary or mixed work. Summer Tide Pool Chapbooks of poetry are between 20-40 pages and chapbooks of fiction, creative nonfiction, essays and mixed work are between 25-60 pages not including front matter. Manuscript authors selected for publication receive ten copies of the book, $100 dollars and a reading in New York City. Entries are open from the Summer Solstice (June 21) to the Autumnal Equinox (Sept 22).
We are looking for work that is developed, polished, and has a strong singular voice. We encourage emerging and established authors in the manuscript process to submit their best work.
