Encircle Publication’s books and chapbooks stand apart from other poetry publisher’s not only for their engaging and diverse poetic voices but also (just as importantly) for their high quality production. All Encircle books are lovingly produced with a perfect binding, a glossy professionally designed cover, high quality pages and beautiful end papers. The layout and design of each book is unique in it’s own right. We’re proud to produce individual pieces of art that stand apart from the cheap flimsy poorly designed saddle stapled books that are pumped out by the poetry mills. Since 2011, Encircle Publications has offered its Annual Chapbook Contest. Winning manuscript each year is published in a high-quality print chapbook. Winner now receives $250 and 25 copies. Submissions are welcome year-round with a deadline of 9/1 for December publication. In addition Encircle Publications now offers two biannual reading periods each for other chapbook manuscript submissions. Submissions open from January–April and July–October for two publications per year.
