New Guideline: The poet must NOT have already WON a previous chapbook contest in The Comstock Review.

The Rules:
1.   Submissions must be unpublished as a collection, but individual poems may have been previously published in journals.
2.   Will consider simultaneous submissions as long as the poet notifies us immediately upon acceptance elsewhere.
3.   Submit 25-34 pages of poetry, single-spaced (1 page=38 lines maximum, including spacing between lines;
poems may run longer than 1 page). Manuscripts either too short or too long will be disqualified.
4.   Do not count title page, table of contents, acknowledgments, dedication, or bio in the page length.
5.   Do not send illustrations, photos, or any other graphics attached to the poems.
6.   Manuscripts should be paginated and secured with a binder clip; no staples or plastic covers.
7.   Judging is done without any reference to the poet’s name.  All entries are screened by the editors of The Comstock Review.
8.   Include 2 cover pages: 1 with mss title, poet’s name, address, phone number, and e-mail address; second with mss title only.
       Poet’s name should not appear on poems. List acknowledgments on a separate, removable page.
9.    Include SASE for results only; mss will not be returned.
