Free chapbooks are a great resource for readers and teachers! New at 2River is How the World Was Made, a new collection of prose poems by Christien Gholson and number 20 in the 2River Chapbook Series. The chapbook can be read online, or to make your own print copy, click Chap-A-Book to download a PDF, which you can then print double-sided, fold, and staple to have a personal copy of Gholson’s chapbook.
2nd River accepts submissions for their chapbook series. Submissions should consist of no more than 23 poems, and authors are asked to browse the series before submitting to be sure their work is a good match for 2nd River.
2nd River is also currently accepting submissions of unpublished poetry (June 1 – Aug 31) for their fall 2009 issue.
