      Pavement Saw Chapbook Contest: Deadline 12/31
      <<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      Submit electronically, save the hassle of printing out a manuscript and
      have
      your funds support poetry not the post office! Directly enter by using
      our
      website http://www.pavementsaw.org/pages/chapcontest.htm

      $500 and 50 copies of the winning chapbook will be awarded to the
      winner. In
      addition to the prize winner, at least one other manuscript will be
      published
      under a standard royalty contract (author paid 10% of press run).
      Everyone is
      allowed to submit regardless of previous publication history. Every
      entrant will
      receive the equivalent cost of the entry fee in Pavement Saw Press
      titles.

      Unlike many publishers whose collections are printed one copy at a time
      and
      therefore lack a large circulation, our chapbooks are published in a
      first
      edition of 400 copies plus overage. While chapbooks rarely receive
      exposure,
      ours have been reviewed in Poets and Writers, Publishers Weekly, The
      Georgia
      Review, Small Press Review and many others. Our previous winners have
      had
      subsequent full length books appear from a bevy of publishers including
      Curbstone Press, Cleveland State University Press, Bear Star Press,
      University
      of Georgia, and Hanging Loose Press.

      Submit up to 32 pages of poetry. Include a signed cover letter with
      your name,
      address, phone number, e-mail, publication credits, a brief biography
      and the
      title of the chapbook. Include a cover page with your contact
      information and
      the chapbook title. Include a second page with the chapbook title only.
      Do not
      include your name on any pages inside the manuscript except for
      the first title page. No need for a contents page. All chapbooks are
      selected
      blindly / anonymously. Manuscripts will be considered until December
      31st, 2010.
      Entry fee: $15 for US entries, $18 overseas, $21 electronic (world
      wide).

      If you wish to submit electronically, send $21.00 via paypal to
      <info(at)pavementsaw.org> (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail).
      Then e-mail the manuscript as an attachment to the same
      address and we will send you an e-mail confirmation that your entry is
      all set.
      Electronic submissions need to be sent as PDF files or as word (.doc or
      .docx)
      files. Other formats are not accepted. The extra cost is to cover the
      paypal
      fees as well as the time, labor, ink, and so on, to print out your
      manuscript.
      Or use our website
      http://www.pavementsaw.org/pages/chapcontest.htm

      If you wish to send via regular mail accompany your manuscript with a
      check in
      the amount of $15.00 payable to Pavement Saw Press. All contributors to
      the
      contest will receive books, chapbooks
      and journals equal to, or more than, the entry fee. Add $3 (US) for
      other
      countries to cover the extra postal charge. Do not include an SASE for
      notification of results. Do not send the only copy of your work. All
      manuscripts
      are recycled and individual comments on the manuscripts cannot be made.
      This
      year the editor will be the judge and, as it should be, he promises not
      to chose
      former students, former or potential sexual partners, press interns, or
      people
      that can make him famous. A decision will be reached in March. Entries
      should be
      sent to our address at the bottom of the page.
