New Delta Review is thrilled to announce our seventh annual chapbook competition. For this contest, we're looking for bright, inventive, challenging, and mind-bending manuscripts of unpublished poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or hybrid work. We’re particularly interested in works that push against traditional understandings of literature and art, of their capacities.

Judge: Chen Chen
Past Winner: Dorothy Chan

Grand Prize:

  • Publication and 25 author copies
  • $250


  • All manuscripts must be received by January 1, 2018.
  • All submissions require a $17 entry fee and must be entered to NDR through Submittable. 
  • Manuscripts should be 20-40 pages in length and should include a title page with contact information. While single pieces within the manuscript may be published elsewhere, the manuscript as a whole should be unpublished. We only ask that writers include original publication sites. 
  • Multiple submissions require separate entry fees. Simultaneous submissions are welcome on the condition that writers notify NDR of another acceptance as soon as possible.
  • Family, friends, and previous students of the judge are ineligible for participation in the contest. Current students and faculty of LSU are ineligible.
