128 LIT International Chapbook Contest

July 31, 2023, 11:59 PM EDT


Submissions are OPEN from May 15th through July 31st.

A winner and finalists will be announced in November 2023.

Award: $1,200, plus publication in print.

There will be a panel of judges that includes Mona Kareem, Saddiq Dzukogi, and Jacques Fux.

The 128 LIT International Chapbook Contest (between 20 & 40 pages) is for both poetry and prose. If individual pieces have been published elsewhere, that’s ok but the manuscript may not have been published as a whole before.

Prose will include fiction, essayistic pieces, and hybrid/cross-genre works. It’s fine if there is a combination of artwork/images and text as long as you’re aware that chapbooks will all be printed in black and white.

Translated manuscripts must be accompanied by the piece(s) in the original language(s). If translators are submitting, they also must have sufficient permissions from the author & publisher to translate and to have the entire manuscript published by 128 LIT.

We ask that all text, where possible, is in Times New Roman size 12 font. Prose pieces should also be double-spaced.

There will be a $18 reading fee that helps contribute to covering some administrative costs of running the platform.

Submit here.
