All dressed up and nowhere to go

Took the afternoon off work and spent a few hours at my desk revising a chapbook ms. until it felt reasonably good to me. Now I'm suddenly finding that most chapbook contests either had deadlines back in December or don't close until at least May or so.

Anyone know of any good chapbook contests (other than Tupelo Press) with a deadline between now and, say, April? I'm sure I will hate this ms. again in a few weeks, so I should shoot it out to as many places as I can while I can still stand it. ;)

Good work getting the cahpbook in shape, Anne!

Rebecca - thanks! I think of them as publishing more experimental-ish stuff, but maybe I'll send the beastie in their direction & see what happens.

Garbo - thanks! It's a good exercise for me, even if nothing comes of it.

Thanks, Eduardo! I'll check into that one. May 15... hm... I can revise this manuscript at least four times by then. ;)
