The Orchard Street Press is now accepting entries for its seventh annual Poetry Contest: $700 first prize, $500 second, $300 third. Prize-winning and other submitted poems will appear in Quiet Diamonds, our annual poetry journal, and select entrants will be invited to submit chapbooks for possible publication. This year, we are publishing 10 chapbooks from entrants to the 2023 Contest. We expect to publish a similar number from the ‘24 Contest.

We are delighted to announce the release of four new chapbooks! All of them come from poets whose work was submitted to our 2022  Poetry Contest. We are currently working with other projects that will be published within the next couple months, among them the 2023 edition of Quiet Diamonds.

The four books we are announcing this August are:

Day for Night by Valerie Sopher of El Cerrito, California
How We All Fly by Bill Griffin of Elkin, North Carolina
Approximate Sonnets by Alan Eleshevitz of East Norriton, Pennsylvania
Guideline for Nirvana by Sue Spirit of West Salem, Ohio
