Every Her Dies, Jennifer MacBain-Stephens

*****DEADLINE EXTENDED*****
Open Reading Submission Period: June 1st – August 10th
The Poetry Center, San Francisco State University invites emerging and established poets to submit work to the Poetry Center Chapbook Exchange. The PCCE began as a community-curated chapbook archive created in 2010, by poets recommending other poets using an each one-invite one model. See http://poetrychapbooks.omeka.net Since 2014, the PCCE has developed from an invite-only model to an inclusive fee-free open reading period.

We aim to provide and maintain open access to small-press and out-of-print chapbooks to promote readership of contemporary poetry as well as encourage its value and availability for use as free, educational, teaching resources. Send us your work that plays, sings, risks, interrogates, provokes, and moves beyond.

Guidelines:
Length: 10-40 pages
Currency: New work (written within the last 5 years); published work that’s fallen out of print.
Aesthetics: seeking a range of forms, approaches, hybrids.

There is no reading fee!

Please email submissions to chapbookexchange@gmail.com.
Feel free to visit our archives: https://poetrychapbooks.omeka.net/
