The New Michigan Press / DIAGRAM chapbook contest announces our guidelines for 2016. We pick the majority of our chapbook list each year from the ranks of the chapbook contest finalists, so this is the best way to get your work read by our eager readers.

The Prize: $1000 plus publication; finalist chapbooks also considered for publication (in 2015 we published five)

Interesting, lovely unpublished work (unpublished as a whole; individual pieces may be published already of course), prose or poetry or some combination or something between genres, 18-44 manuscript pages (no more than one poem per page if you're sending poems unless they are very, very short)
