Contest Still Open

We seem to have been on a bit of a posting hiatus lately, but we're back!

Our poetry chapbook contest is still open. Details. We've received dozens of entries so far and are purging them of identifiers for our readers, and piling them up. Everyone who has submitted to the contest so far seems to have followed our guidelines. I only want to mention three things, though.

1) this is a chapbook contest, so keep the collection short

2) it helps if you actually give your collection some sort of thought. Throwing some poems together and not titling it makes it seem like you have not put much effort into it - as a collection.

3) remember who you are sending the collection to. Don't call us by a different company name or write the wrong title of the collection on your introductory letter.

Aside from that, keep the submissions coming. We appreciate a challenge. The better the writing, the more difficult the decision.
