Map Literary is pleased to announce that the fourth Rachel Wetzsteon Chapbook Award is now open for submissions. Named after our late colleague, this award honors beautiful, original writing through publication as a high-quality chapbook.
This year the award will focus on fiction. We seek new, original work, though individual pieces that have been previously published elsewhere may be included. The manuscript should be about 30 pages long.
The deadline for entries is May 15th, 2020. There is no entry fee through March 15th.
The winner will receive a $250.00 honorarium and 25 copies of the winning chapbook, which will be printed and sold on Amazon.com.
Previous winner Wendy Oleson and Map Literary editors will judge. Editors reserve the right to select no winner, or to select multiple winners, depending on the quality of submissions received.
