The Radix Media Own Voices Chapbook Prize is an annual contest dedicated to the discovery of two timely, urgent, and interrogative chapbook-length poetry collections from debut poets of color. One chapbook will be published in the Fall of 2020 and the other in the Spring of 2021.

The contest is open from March 1 until May 31, 11:59 pm EST.

The Guest Judge for the 2020 Own Voices Chapbook Prize is Aria Aber.

The Own Voices Chapbook Prize includes a cash award of $500 for each winner, 25 author copies, a book launch in New York City, and a limited print run of 250 copies. At Radix Media, we pride ourselves on the production of superior quality, purposefully designed books. The poets of the winning chapbooks will work with our in-house designers to conceptualize their chapbook cover, letterpress printed on quality cover stock, like our other saddle-stitched chapbooks.
