Two Calls for Submissions: 2012 bpNichol Chapbook Award + Leaf Press

Call for Submissions: Leaf Press
Leaf Press is gathering poems for an anthology about the newly born, the almost born, the journey in-between. We are interested in thresholds and liminal states; in moments that transcend global cultures. We welcome poems from all the continents, asking only that they be accompanied by a translation to English. We may be able to help, in some instances, with translations. Please send your poem to:, subject line: Newborns or to: Leaf Press, Box 416, Lantzville, B.C. V0R 2H0.

We will accept poems that have been previously published. Poets must provide this information (publication, publishing house and date) as well as permission for us to reprint. Leaf plans to publish the anthology in Spring 2014. Deadline: January 30, 2013. Anthology Editors: Ann Graham Walker and Ursula Vaira. Selected poets will be paid a fee of $50.00 CAD plus a copy of the book.

Call for submissions: 2012 bpNichol Chapbook Award
A $2000 prize will be awarded for the poetry chapbook judged to be the best submitted. Interested authors or publishers should submit three copies of a chapbook of poetry in English published in Canada in 2011. Chapbooks should be no less than 10 pages and no more than 48 pages. Submissions should include a brief C.V. of the author, plus address, telephone number, and email address. Send to: Meet the Presses / bpNichol Chapbook Award, PO Box 26, Station P, Toronto, Ontario M5S 2S6. The closing date for submissions to the 2012 competition is May 31, 2012.
