Welcome to Overleaf, a chapbook manuscript competition which awards contracts to one Canadian and one international poet each year.
Winners will receive 50 copies of their chapbook
Everyone who enters will receive a poetry book of their choice from the Leaf Press catalogue
Chapbooks are designed with the fine attention to papers, colours and typography which has made Leaf's reputation over fifteen years. These two will be printed, assembled and hand-stitched in the sunny/rainy studio looking out to the cedar forest.
Blind judging in effect.
