Poetry Chapbook Contest Offers Cash and a Residency in Slovenia

Submissions are currently open for Verse’s Tomaž Šalamun Prize, given annually for a chapbook of original poetry or poetry in translation. The prize includes $500, publication by Factory Hollow Press, and a monthlong residency at the Tomaž Šalamun Center for Poetry in Ljubljana, Slovenia, valued at approximately $1,500. Anaïs Duplan will judge.

Using the online submission system, submit a poetry manuscript of 20 to 28 pages with a $15 ($10 for current students) by March 15.

The residency will be held from May 20 to June 20, 2019. The resident will be provided with private lodging in an apartment with a full kitchen and bath, but is responsible for her own meals and travel expenses. Visit the Verse website for more information.
