Well, our one-year anniversary issue just went live on the Ides. And it’s awesome! Mad Lib poems, non-fiction/poetry, translation and more. And we’re just about to launch our series of chapbooks! So, without further ado, our first ever chapbook contest!

ANOMALOUS PRESS ANNOUNCES OUR FIRST-EVER CHAPBOOK CONTEST!

March 15 – May 15

$500 prize plus publication!

Finalist manuscripts will also be considered for publication, and all submissions will be considered for publication in the journal.

$15 fee.

We will publish the winning manuscript in each of the following categories:

  • Translations. Specifically innovative translations, translations that draw attention to themselves, hybrid translations, translations that defy convention, translations that prey on, magnify, distort, and bring greatness to source texts.
  • Poetry. Original poetry.

Christian Hawkey will judge the translation category.
