After a long delay (sorry, sorry), we’re very happy to announce the co-winners of the 2012 Keystone Chapbook Prize. Guest judge Brent Goodman has selected Field Trip to the Underworld by Hayden Saunier as the winner among writers with previous book publication; Marjorie Maddox’s Recently Young in a People Gone Old was the runner-up. Among writers with no previous book publication, Brent selected Wooden Boys by Michael Hurley; Katherine Fallon’s The Tooth-Maker’s Daughter was the runner-up.


The winning chapbooks will be published next spring. Congratulations to all the finalists–it was a pleasure to read work at such a consistently high level.

Due to a significant number of queries regarding the changed deadline (changed from last year), we’re happy to extend the reading period for the annual Rane Arroyo Chapbook Prize: we will continue accepting submissions through October 31. Please note that work will be considered this year only from writers without previous book or chapbook publication. We use a blind-submission process; editors Ron Mohring and Eduardo C. Corral will read every manuscript received and are looking forward to seeing your work! Full guidelines here.
