We are pleased to announce the semi-finalists for the Mary Ballard Poetry Chapbook Prize

We are excited to narrow our field of contenders for the contest to these semi-finalists.

Semi-finalists, keep your simultaneous submissions active, but let us know immediately if you need to withdraw. Three finalists will be selected within two weeks, and we need to be certain these three poets are available to accept their publishing contract upon winning.
