Ends on $15.00

The Burnside Review Chapbook Contest runs May 1 through July 15, 2022.

Submit 18-24 pages of poetry, including a list of acknowledgments. Your name and contact information should not appear anywhere in the manuscript.

A $15 entry fee must be paid at the time of submission.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know immediately if your manuscript has been accepted elsewhere.

The winner will receive $200, plus ten copies of the chapbook.

Results will be announced in October.

Submissions are open for The Skipping Out Issue.

As in: lighting out, on the lam, playing hooky, escaping, getting away, blowing it off, making off, muzzling, scramming, bolting, breaking away, bugging out, fleeing, hightailing it on out, getting the fuck out of Dodge. Work that says: Screw this. I’m outta here.

We’re looking for poems, short fiction (under 1,500 words), or artwork that considers the theme of Skipping Out in any capacity. Submit 1-2 pieces through Submittable.

Contributors will receive a copy of the journal in which their work appears.
