Submission Guidelines

All chapbook manuscripts should be in Word format and contain no more than 18-24 poems within them. Poets should submit their best work, as the chapbook is a body of work that reflects the poet's style and personality. No simultaneous submissions. No previously published manuscripts/books, however, a manuscript may contain poems within it that have been published in print or online journals. Keep in mind that we are looking for fresh, interesting undiscovered poets. Due to the large amount of submissions we receive, a response in regards to your manuscript could take up to four months. We do not accept submissions through postal mail. Send all submissions to maverickduckpress@yahoo.com
