WHAT IS THE SUMMER MICRO-CHAPBOOK SERIEs?


We started our annual Micro-Chapbook Series back in 2016 as a way to provide our readers with free poetry throughout the summer. Supporting the online-lit community can be expensive and this was a way for us to help introduce new writers to the community, to help established writers find a broader audience, and to help raise money for all of the writers and artists involved. We now release one micro-chapbook each weekday throughout the summer.

Every title released as part of the Summer Series is available as a free PDF download on our website. In addition to downloading the collections of poetry, fiction, and cross-genre work, you also have the option of donating to any of the writers involved, and the best part is that they get to keep 100% of what’s donated to them. Some of our authors have even chosen to forward their donations to various charity organizations (these are noted on their individual micro-chap pages).

If you’d like to learn more about why and how we started the Summer Series, check out these features in Maudlin House and Lit Hub.

If you’d like to have a micro-chap delivered to your email inbox each weekday throughout the summer, sign up HERE.

If you’re interested in submitting your own work for the 2020 Summer Series, check back at the end of January for submission guidelines and more information about our guest editors.

We hope you enjoy!
