Boone's Dock Press holds chapbook contest

Boone's Dock Press is holding it's first annual chapbook contest. It's called Uncle Walt's 50/50 Contest. It's named after Walt Whitman. I particularly like this statement from the Boone Dock Press folks. "This is a proper 50/50 contest. Remember the raffle at the church supper? It’s just like that. We collect all of the entry fees, cut out the printing costs and split the cash with the winner. We also add ten author copies to the winnings and let poets keep the rights to their work after the first print run, just because that’s how we think Walt would have done it."

Length is 32-36 pages. Deadline April 1, 2011. Fee $15. Good luck!
