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!!
