      MadHat Press is the non-profit imprint arm of the multimedia e-zine,
      Mad Hatters’ Review and a production of MadHat Arts Inc. MadHat Press
      seeks to foster the work of writers and poets: explosive, lyrical,
      passionate, deeply wrought voices that stretch the boundaries of
      language, narrative and image, vital and enduring literary voices that
      sing on the page as well as in the mind.

      Formerly based out of New York City, now at home in Asheville, North
      Carolina, and with our Managing Editor currently situated in Reykjavik,
      Iceland, MadHat Press is open to authors of all creeds and
      distinctions, from the emerging to the emergent, from the multicultural
      to the insolent. For a list of some of our contributors over the
      years, click on the Mad Hatters’ Review tab.

      To inaugurate the official birth of MadHat Press, CAConrad, Philly poet
      extraordinaire and author of the gripping collection, The Book of Frank
      (Wave 2010), will be judging the first poetry chapbook competition.
      Future MadHat Press chapbook competitions will include flash-fiction,
      short story, and novella categories.

      MadHat Press places great emphasis on the aesthetics of design,
      typography and the printed word. It is MadHat Press’s vision to connect
      the reader with the physicality of the book in its creative unraveling.
      The Press will also publish aesthetically pleasing e-books.

      Please note guidelines for the “Wild and Wyrd” poetry chapbook
      competition below. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

      is broad and includes prose and conceptual poetry. There are no
      restrictions regarding form, style, or content.

      Advanced Elvis Course (Soft Skull Press, 2009), Deviant Propulsion
      (Soft Skull Press, 2006), and a collaboration with Frank Sherlock, The
      City Real & Imagined (Factory School Press, 2010). He has a new book
      of poetry forthcoming, A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon (Wave Books,
