Hi! If you'd like to submit a manuscript for Epigraph's digital chapbook series, you're in the right place.

If you'd like to submit to our journal, Epigraph Magazine, please head over to epigraphmagazine.com/journal-submissions
We would recommend that you read the full details on our chapbook series here: http://www.epigraphmagazine.com/chapbook-submissions.html

Here are the basic guidelines & suggestions:

1. Submit your chapbook manuscript as a PDF, doc, or docx file. If we accept your chap, we’ll need a word-compatible file eventually, but PDFs are preferable for reading & assessing your work.

2. In your manuscript, provide a title page that includes your name & email address. At the end of the document, include a bio. Also, include a list of any journals that have published individual pieces from your chapbook, if applicable. You can include any additional information, like an acknowledgments page, if you have it ready, but it’s not important to include that sort of thing in your initial submission.

3.  Any/all of the individual poems in your chapbook can be previously published in various journals, but the chapbook, as a whole, should be unpublished.

4. If you would like to include any multimedia elements in your chapbook, please familiarize yourself with the link posted above. That will tell you what sorts of things we can publish. If you do choose to include any multimedia elements, it’s your choice how you would like to represent them in your submitted manuscript. Feel free to describe any videos/gifs as if you were writing a movie script, include still images, and/or—if they are available online—you can provide links within the manuscript. Do whatever you feel is best to represent your vision.

5. Please include a cover letter in the appropriate field on the Submittable page, but feel free to make it very informal. I hate writing stuffy cover letters, & you probably do too. Tell us a little about yourself & a little about your manuscript. Include whatever you want to share with us. This is just a little way to introduce us to you as a person & a writer, so be as casual as you want.

6. We’re planning on responding to submissions within ~3 months. If 3 months passes & you haven’t heard from us, please shoot us an email.

7. Epigraph chapbooks will be digital & free to read. Unfortunately we are unable to pay for accepted manuscripts at this time. We will, however, provide a platform for our published writers & try our hardest to treat your work with the respect that it deserves. Epigraph's goal has always been to share great poetry with the world as best we can.
