      Pavement Saw Press Chapbook Competition
      http://www.pavementsaw.org/pages/chapcontest.htm

      $500 and 50 copies of the winning chapbook will be awarded for the finest
      collection of poetry received. 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.

      The chapbooks are published in an edition of 400 copies. 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,
      Blazevox Books, 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
      anonymously. Entry fee: $12.

      Make all checks payable to: Pavement Saw Press. Every entrant will receive at
      least twelve dollars in books which we will pay to mail. Do not include an
      SASE. All manuscripts will be recycled. Manuscripts will be considered until
      December 31st, 2007 for the prize. 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.

      If you wish to send via regular mail your manuscript should be accompanied by
      a check in the amount of $12.00 made payable to Pavement Saw Press. All US
      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, this
      information will be sent with the free book. Do not send the only copy of your
      work. All manuscripts are recycled and individual comments on the manuscripts
      cannot be made. Entries should be sent to our address at the bottom of the
      page.

      If you wish to submit electronically,
      go to

      for further instructions

      In addition to the prize winner, sometimes another anonymous manuscript is
