What in the world is a chapbook? The term is more commonly known in the UK, it’s a small collection of poetry. Usually no more than 40 pages.
I put together most of the poems I wrote for NaPoWriMo2023 along with a few others and submitted my “chapbook” to the Frontier Poetry Breakthrough Chapbook Contest. Just in time, too! I wasn’t feeling prepared to submit anything, but got an email that the deadline was imminent. I thought, why not just send in it? So I quickly organized and polished my poems and sent off 28 of them.
If I win I get a nice check, plus a published book and exposure. Wouldn’t that be lovely?
