We only accept poetry for the Boom Contest and flash fiction for the Keel Contest. Both contest alternate on a yearly basis. We will run the Boom Contest in the fall of 2016. Submission Dates: Aug 15-Nov 30.
Bateau Press is the publisher for its annual Boom Chapbook Contest and Keel Short Short Fiction Chapbook Contest. Our chapbooks are of the highest quality, well-designed, letterpress covers, hand stitched, and detail-oriented. We look for manuscripts that are strong based solely on the work itself—no themes, games, niches, or elaborate construction structures. Just good writing. We are also an environmental conscious publisher.
