Chapbook publishers present one of the best opportunity for young and emerging writers to get started. They allow you to get your fledgling work out there, and they give a “bump” to many writers who would have to struggle along for a few more years before publishing. They are a tradition in publishing, and we hope they survive for a very long time. In the age of electronic books and fast publishing, chapbook publishers sometimes seem a little superfluous, but they are a very good way to have your work validated by a publisher at a very young stage in a career. This is invaluable for some writers to give them the confidence to continue on with their writing. Please note that you can find a complete and searchable listing of book publishers on EWR: Book Publishers.
