Northography Chapbook competition (Minnesota) and Red Bird Chapbooks unite to bring you the Summer Broadside Competition, a two-week writing frenzy culminating in the publication of one winner’s poem as a broadside.

Enroll now as a community member.

Then, on August 21st, a photograph by our featured Northographer, Gina Kelly, will be revealed on the website as a writing stimulus. You will have two weeks to submit as many quality poems or prose excerpts as your passionate heart can stand. A panel of three judges will review each post and, from these, will select one winner.

The winner’s poem or prose will compliment Kelly’s photograph in a broadside to be released by Red Bird Chapbooks this year. Winner will also receive complimentary copies of the broadside, and be featured on Red Bird Chapbooks’ Broadside Series page. Broadsides are printed as 8.5” x 11” posters and posted in select venues throughout the Twin Cities for 30 days as a work of public art/public literature.
