      The Whitebird Chapbook Series

      This chapbook series is named in honor of Joanie Whitebird, founder of
      Wings Press. As The Texas Observer described her, Joanie was “an
      old-fashioned fence hater, a wire-cutter, a woman in love with the open
      road, with open relationships, with open futures fraught with
      possibilities.” We honor her spirit by using this series to introduce
      new and innovative poetic voices.

      The Whitebird Chapbook Series is an open competition. The entries are
      given two "blind" readings, resulting in five finalists. The winning
      manuscript is announced in April and published in September by Wings
      Press in an edition limited to 500 numbered and signed copies, of which
      100 copies are given to the poet. The chapbooks are printed on fine
      paper and hand-sewn by the publisher.
