Leaf Press Chapbook Contest

Leaf Press

From Ursula Vaira of Leaf Press:

Welcome to Overleaf, a chapbook manuscript competition which awards contracts to one Canadian and one international poet each year.

Winners will receive 50 copies of their copies of their chapbook as well as publicity and $100.00 to put towards refreshments for a launch party in their home town.

Everyone who enters will receive a poetry book of their choice from the Leaf Press catalogue
(by return post, shipping paid). Click here for a link to the catalogue.

Chapbooks are designed with the fine attention to papers, colours and typography which has made Leaf’s reputation over fourteen years. These two will be assembled and hand-stitched in the sunny/rainy studio looking out to the cedar forest.

Blind judging in effect.

The fee of $25.00 per entry supports Leaf’s publishing program. By participating you contribute to Canada’s small independent publishing community. If you wish to contribute more, simply increase the quantity in the PayPal window.
