Deadline Approaching for the Mississippi Valley Chapbook Competition!

Writers interested in entering Midwest Writing Center's annual Mississippi Valley Chapbook Competition must postmark their submissions to the Midwest Writing Center by July 31st in order to be considered.

The Mississippi Valley Chapbook Competition invites submissions of 16-24 poems for the election of a regional (IL and IA) poet's collection and a national poet's collection to be published by MWC Press.  The winner will receive 15 free copies of their chapbook as well as $100 in prize money.
Poetry submissions should be paginated and secured with a binder clip with no identifying information included on the poetry pages. Poets should include a cover page with their name, the title of the chapbook, their address, phone, e-mail, and an indication of whether the submission is for the regional or national competition. A second cover page with only the chapbook title should be included to allow for a blind review. A reading fee of $15 is also required. For more information and and instructions about how to enter via mail or Submission Manager may be found on MWC's Mississippi Valley Chapbook Competition web page.  Good Luck!!
