2018 Submissions are now closed.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their chapbook manuscripts.

We will announce the 2018 chapbook titles before November 1st, 2017.



Junction Books is now accepting submissions of poetry chapbook manuscripts for the 2018 publishing year. The submissions deadline is: September 1st, 2017. All submissions should be emailed as PDF files to: info@junctionbooks.ca. Please make sure your name and email address appear in the header of each page of the PDF.

Please note that individual poems in the manuscript can be previously published in journals or anthologies, but the manuscript as a whole cannot be previously published in chapbook form.

Junction Books publishes poetry by Canadian writers. We are particularly interested in poem sequences, but any collection of poems can be submitted. Our chapbooks are usually 32 pages long, so the manuscript should include fifteen to twenty poems. Please be aware that we are a very small press with limited resources, so we expect poets to help market and sell their chapbooks.

We will respond to all submissions to confirm that they have been received. Our hope is to have our 2018 line up chosen by November 1, 2017.
