Diode Editions is running a chapbook contest, and translations — and collaborations — are welcome:
Diode Editions, run by diode poetry journal stalwart Patty Paine along with Law Alsobrook, is a young house, but they have previously published Philip Metres’s award-winning A Concordance of Leaves, among other titles.
The Diode Editions 2015 Chapbook Contest is open to all poets over the age of 18, worldwide. Submissions must be 22-32 pages and must arrive in English.
