Palette Poetry is delighted to offer this inaugural Palette Chapbook Prize! Poetry chapbook manuscripts of all styles are welcome—they have no theme or aesthetic preference. The judge this year is Chen Chen.
Chen Chen is the author of the forthcoming poetry collection, Your Emergency Contact Has Experienced an Emergency (BOA Editions, 2022), and the forthcoming book of essays, In Cahoots with the Rabbit God (Noemi Press, 2023). His debut book of poems, When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities (BOA Editions, 2017), was longlisted for the National Book Award and won the Thom Gunn Award, among other honors. He teaches for the low-residency MFA programs at New England College and Stonecoast.
The winning chapbook will be published and made available digitally in late Summer/Fall 2023. The contest submission fee is $20. Submissions are open from June 20 — August 21, 2022. The Chapbook Prize is open to all poets writing in English.
