Rattle Chapbook Prize
Deadline: January 15, 2022
The annual Rattle Chapbook Prize gives poets something truly special. Every year, three winners will each receive: $5,000 cash, 500 contributor copies, and distribution to Rattle's ~8,000 subscribers. In a world where a successful full-length poetry book might sell 1,000 copies, the winning book will reach an audience eight times as large on its release day alone—an audience that includes many other literary magazines, presses, and well-known poets. This will be a chapbook to launch a career.
And maybe the best part is this: The $25 entry fee is just a standard subscription to Rattle, which includes four issues of the magazine and the winning chapbook, even if it isn't yours. Rattle is one of the most-read literary journals in the world—find out why just by entering! For more information, visit our website.
We congratulate our three winners from our 2021 contest:
- Gil Arzola, The Death of a Migrant Worker (September 2021)
- Amanda Newell, I Will Pass Even to Acheron (December 2021)
- Elizabeth Ambrose Johnston, Imago, Dei (March 2022)
