Slate Roof Press is celebrating the letterpress arts and 15 years of publishing uniquely beautiful chapbooks by offering a broadside competition this year. We will select two poems to become letterpress broadsides. One poem will be drawn only from contestants living in either Franklin or Hampshire county in Massachusetts. The second poem will be drawn from contestants across the United States.
Each contest winner will receive $250 for the Glass Prize. Each poem will be printed in a beautiful limited letterpress edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. We will sponsor a reading for the local winner, and also record readings of both winners to be posted on Facebook and other venues. Winners receive 10 author copies of their broadside.
