Submissions are now open for the YellowJacket Press (YJP) Annual Chapbook Contest for Florida Poets. In memory of friend and YJP Poet, Mary Elizabeth (Bettie) Perez, this year’s competition has been dubbed the BETTIE Contest for Florida Poets.

The winners will receive $200, thirty copies of the book and will be invited to read with YJP during the AWP conference in Tampa in March 2018. The mission of YellowJacket Press is to support emerging and established poets in Florida with an annual chapbook contest, chapbook publications and public readings. YellowJacket Press creates a means for poets to share and promote their work and nurtures a sense of community among poets and audiences across the state.

All entrants must be permanent adult residents of Florida. Winner(s) will be announced in February, 2018.
