LGBT Poetry/ Fiction Entries Sought: Brickhouse Books Stonewall Chapbook Competition

Post date: 19 April 2012
Deadline: 15 May 2012

Owing to BhB’s having received a relatively small number of eligible submissions to the Stonewall chapbook competition during the current round, the deadline to submit has been extended to May 15, 2012. Judging will take place June-August 2012, with the winner for 2012-13 to be announced in the early fall. In order to speed manuscripts on their rounds of preliminary judges, we urge you to submit your work BOTH ON PAPER AND ELECTRONICALLY. This applies to those mss. already submitted as well as to new submissions. (New submitters should consult the guidelines below.)


This division of BrickHouse Books is dedicated to publishing poetry from an LBGT perspective. In addition to publishing book-length manuscripts, Stonewall also runs an annual chapbook competition. The prize is publication of the chapbook.

  • 20-30 page manuscript of poetry or short fiction
  • $20 reading/judging fee
  • S.A.S.E.


For inquiries/ submissions: send queries and manuscripts to Clarinda Harriss, Director, 306 Suffolk Rd., Baltimore, MD 21218 or charriss@towson.edu
