Welcome to the chapbook center, that lists all of our available chapbooks on the web. They are listed by date, from the most recent year to the oldest year. Possible link choices for each chapbook are for either the web page for browsing and reading or to an e-book (PDF file).

    If you are interested in having an electronic chapbook with us, this is what you should do:

contact     Send an e-mail to us, stating that you would like your manuscript considered for a chapbook. List in your letter what you believe would be a good title for your chapbook. Attach to your e-mail to us a Microsoft Word “.doc” file with your manuscript as you would like to see it in the chapbook. We ask for it as a Microsoft Word “.doc” file, because in this format each poem (or short story, or section of your submitted chapbook) can be separated by a page (there’s a function for that, instead of having to type in a lot of returns between pieces - though if you can’t find that function, you could still include many spaces between pieces), so we will be able to easily see where breaks belong in your manuscript. In this attached Microsoft Word “.doc” file, please include everything you would like to see in your chapbook - which can also include not only your writing, but also (if you want it) a Table of Contents (don’t guess the page numbers after titles with what you’d guess the page would be for it, we would do that if we choose to publish your chapbook), a forward, an introduction, a dedication page, a “previously published in” page, or an acknowledgments page. These are all suggestions of what you could want to have in your chapbook that you would be submitting to us, so you can include them in you attached Microsoft Word “.doc” file.

    When we receive this, we will go over the materials and make our decision. We will either let you know that we cannot do the chapbook, or we’ll let you know that your chapbook has been accepted and is already on line in the “chapbooks” section of http://scars.tv for you to view.

Enjoy the reading, and if you have any questions at all, e-mail us,
and we will get back to you right away.
