CFS: Chapbook DL extended: Hotmetal Press

Just passing this along; their guidelines don't exactly sound writer-friendly, if you ask me. . .

The 3rd Annual Hotmetalpress Chapbook Contest
http://www.hotmetal PoetryPrize. html

Our prize is $350 and 20 free copies. We also want to send every entrant a copy of the winning collection.
  • Page Limit: 32 pages
  • Fee: $20.00
  • Deadline: extended to Wednesday, July 15, 5 PM
  • If you are looking for clues as to what we look for a winner, we wish you luck because our selections are unpredictable and eclectic. We like to take risks if the poems interest us. We do not know what poems will interest us either until we see the poems. Sometimes we request poems from the manuscripts for our magazines.
  • Please make out a check for $20 to Hotmetalpress.
  • Send it to Carole Towers; 1173 Sea Eagle Watch; Charleston SC; 29412.
  • Judged by the staff.
  • Please send a copy of your manuscript in a word document to:sea7@comcast. net.
  • Your work will be read upon receipt of your check.

The entry rules:

  • Single spaced poems in 12pt Courier.
  • Attach title page with your name, address, telephone, and email.
  • 32 page maximum limit including title, content page, acknowledgements, and pages.
  • Anything with more pages will be eliminated.
