The A3 Press: Call for Chapbook Manuscripts

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Deadline is 10 January, 2020.

The A3 Press is a place for work that might struggle to find a traditional home, work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?

We publish approximately ten titles a year. Email us directly with any questions, or contact us via Twitter.

Prizes: 

Selected titles receive £200 (approx $250) and 10 copies of their chapbook.

Deadline: 
01/10/2020
