Duotrope to Sponsor Sheila-Na-Gig Editions’ 2021 Chapbook Prizes!
I am incredibly excited to announce that Duotrope will sponsor Sheila-Na-Gig Editions’ 2021 Poetry Chapbook prizes by generously gifting a two-year Duotrope subscription to our two contest winners! One contest will be made up of “general submissions,” and the other is for poets under age 30. The Sheila-Na-Gig prize also includes $5oo, book publication, and more! The reading fee is $20, and the contest runs from January 1- July 1, 2021. Please read our contest instructions carefully before submitting your manuscript. I look forward to reading your work in the new year. — Hayley

I co-founded the small press poetry magazine Sheila-Na-Gig in California in 1990. I ran the press for 10 years, producing 14 print copies of the journal. I now hold a Ph.D. in 20th Century American Literature from Ohio University and an MFA in poetry from the University of Washington. I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Ohio University Southern, where I teach courses in composition, American literature, and creative writing. My poetry, creative nonfiction, and critical essays have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The Brock Review, Proteus, Rattle, Spillway, and the critical anthologies, The Body in Medical Culture; On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs; and Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror.
