Headmistress Press: Charlotte Mew Chapbook Contest
Deadline: July 4, 2019
Headmistress Press, a lesbian-identified publisher of books by lesbian/bi/trans poets, is proud to announce our fifth annual Charlotte Mew Chapbook Contest. Our judge for this year is Robin Becker. Our first-prize winner will receive $300 plus 20 copies of the winning book. All entries will be considered for publication. We will be accepting submissions through Submittable, and will announce a winner in the fall. Our reading fee is always on a sliding scale, with fee waived upon request. Click here for guidelines and submission.
When we say “lesbian-identified”, we include both women who identify as lesbians and people who identify with lesbians. We recognize that lesbian communities have been and continue to be informed by bi women, trans women, Two Spirit, genderqueer, gender-nonconforming, and non-binary people, and that many of these labels are not mutually exclusive categories. In that spirit, we welcome submissions from all poets who feel an intimate connection with the term “lesbian”.
