BOOM Chapbook Contest 2016

Submissions to Bateau Press’ 2016 BOOM Poetry Chapbook Contest will be accepted August 15 through November 30, 2016….THAT MEANS NOW!!!!!

To submit your manuscript please go to the Submission Guidelines link above or just click here.

For a peek at what our chapbooks look like, check them out here.

All of our chapbooks are things of beauty.  They are all hand stitched, letterpressed works of art.  The covers are designed and printed by Amy Borezo of Shelter Bookworks.  The interiors are offset printed using soy inks and recycled paper.  The books are then all hand sewn by our editors.  We print 300 chapbooks and distribute ourselves through websites, friends, and like minded small bookstores.

We will debut the winning chapbook at AWP 2017 in Washington, D. C.
