2017 Chapbook Series
Thank you for your support! As our third chapbook contest took off, we were excited to see 129 submissions hit our inbox within the usual 48hr window. This page is our central hub to share updates in-regards to this year's contest / publishing production, but Christopher Morgan has also started a N! Tavern series exploring under the hood details of how we're running this.
Like last year, winners debut have the option to represent themselves & N! on stage at any shows we attend this year and next. Following their debut, the books will be distributed online / taken across country with our traveling bookstore, Books & Shovels, at a 'pay-what-you-can' rate. We do this to better provide an accessible amp for our authors, & to avoid clipping potentially excluding price-tags to lit's throat.
Shout out to Craig Mullins of Bottlecap Press joining up with us again to print + Chuck Young lending his art expertise to help us work with tNY's extensive network of artists to find the right cover for each winner.
Nostrovia! is thrilled to announce our three winners for the 2017 Chapbook Contest(!):
Stay tuned, as we'll be posting cover art + reviews here as they're ready <3
If you’re interested in providing reviews, hit us up at: nostroviachapbooks[at]gmail[dot]com. Every person who gets their review posted will be thanked with a free print copy, which are being produced by Craig Mullins at Bottlecap Press. Craig helped out last year, spending a ton of time adjusting printing specs to best showcase the chapbooks, & we're stoked to resume working with him thru 2017.
