2022 Chapbook Contest

The 2022 Frontier Poetry Chapbook Contest

Frontier Poetry announces their 2022 Chapbook Contest with guest judge Tom Sleigh.

The winner of the Chapbook Contest will receive $2000 and publication of their free, downloadable chapbook on the Frontier website, and 50 physical author copies to share and sell.

Chapbooks are a huge milestone for poets, and we’re always looking forward to the Frontier Digital Chapbook Contest—where we get to find that one electric bundle of poems that rocks our world in less than 30 pages. We welcome manuscripts that need some polishing as our editors are always looking forward to working with the authors to make the book the best it can be for publication in 2023.

Guest judge Tom Sleigh is the author of ten books of poetry, most recently House of Fact, House of Ruin; Station Zed; Army Cats; and Space Walk, winner of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award. He is also the author of two essay collections, The Land between Two Rivers: Writing in an Age of Refugees and Interview with a Ghost. Sleigh teaches at Hunter College and lives in New York. He published his eleventh collection, The King’s Touch, on February 1st with Graywolf Press.
