Weekly Read Guidelines

We publish chapbooks, yes, but we’re interested in shorter forms too. Let us see what little gems you’re working on. Send us one poem, one piece of micro fiction or one lyric essay—we use genre distinctions loosely here. Make sure your piece is no longer than a single page, 300 words or whatever comes first. Work must be previously unpublished.  Attach as a Word document (.doc or .docx).  Of the works we receive, we’ll publish one weekly on our website for everyone to see. Email your possibility to weeklyread@redbirdchapbooks.com. Please send only one piece at a time. It might take us a few weeks to decide, but after we let you know what we think, you’re welcome to send another.

The Weekly Read feature began in July 2016 and we read possibilities on an ongoing basis.
