Munster Literature - Closes soon Deadline 30th April
We are reviving our Fool for Poetry Chapbook Competition. Two winners will each have their manuscript published, receive €500 in cash and fifty complimentary copies of their chapbook. The competition is open to new, emerging and established poets from any country BUT at least one of the winners will be a debutant (with no chapbook or book published previously). 25-50 other entrants will be publicly listed as "highly commended". Manuscripts must be sixteen to twenty-four pages in length, in the English language and the sole work of the entrant with no pastiches, translations or 'versions'. The poems can be in verse or prose. Each chapbook is guaranteed a review in Southword Online. The winning chapbooks will be published in August 2014 with striking cover designs, ISBNs, barcodes and will be offered for sale internationally through our own website, Amazon and selected independent book sellers. The winning poets will be considered for the 2015 Cork Spring Poetry Festival programme and have their chapbooks entered for the UK Forward Prize for best poem and anthology. An entrance fee of €20 will be charged for each manuscript. Entrants may enter more than one manuscript of 16-24 pages. The winners will be selected by a panel chosen by the management board of Southword Editions. Deadline: April 30th 2014. HOW TO ENTER
