Tiger's Eye Annual Chapbook Competition
We have suspended the Tiger's Eye Chapbook Contest indefinitely. After thoughtful consideration, we have decided to concentrate on invite-only chapbooks and our Infinities series. Our lives have changed dramatically over the past few years, and giving our poets 100% has become nearly impossible. The press will continue, we will publish our Infinities and Tiger's Eye Chapbooks, but less frequently. We are currently working on the final issue of Tiger's Eye: A Journal of Poetry, and look forward to communicating with the poets we've worked with over the past 15 years. If we can write a blurb for your book, a review, or if you'd like to be featured on our blog, let us know. As always, we are our best selves when working with the considerably talented poets who grace our lives.

In 2001 we joined the world of small presses with an out-sized, saddle-stitched poetry journal featuring emerging poets.
Although we also published established poets, it was always the unknown and unpublished poet who we wanted to ease into
the world of publication. Over the past 15 years we have stayed true to that goal.
The past few years have brought personal changes that have influenced our editorial lives. Colette moved from the
gentle town of Eugene, Oregon to the urban setting of Denver, Colorado. JoAn recently moved from the capitol city of
Sacramento, California to the smaller town of Visalia. During this period of new beginnings we have questioned and reevaluated
our role in the burgeoning world of small presses. Distance from one another, family responsibilities, as well as a desire to
return full-time to writing, have influenced our decision to end the fifteen-year run of Tiger’s Eye: A Journal of Poetry.
From our first issues with numerous errors and questionable layout, to what we now consider a decent little journal,
we’ve fallen in love with each of our poets. Days and nights spent with piles of your poems (covered with numerous notes
and coffee stains) spread out over the floor and on tables, became the joy of our lives. Thank you to each of you who have
graced the pages of Tiger’s Eye. You have shown us that poets are the wisest and most sensitive souls on Earth.
Issue 26, published in 2016, will be our final issue. If you’ve sent during our current submission period, we apologize
for the abrupt ending of acceptances. We encourage you to look to Duotrope and Poet’s Market, as well as NewPages for
publication possibilities. And don't overlook community college presses!
Tiger’s Eye Press will continue to have a presence in the small press world, publishing our annual chapbook winner,
our chapbooks, and our Infinities series. The tiger isn’t going away, just changing his direction.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the last fifteen years the best fifteen years.
