August Open Reading Period

by in Blog, News

We are happy to announce that we will be open for chapbook submissions during the month of August, 2015. Please send us some great chapbooks! We will give preference to manuscripts which interrogate the material form of the chapbook — we want to reimagine the stakes and shape of the chapbook with you. Your chapbook should be approximately 6-24 pages, and should include a title page, a table of contents, a brief bio, and contact information. Please send your chapbooks (and any questions) to damask.press@gmail.com by midnight central time August 31st. (more…)
