Many people do not follow the guidelines properly when submitting a chapbook manuscript. The acknowledgements section of the cover letter should include a list of publications where individual poems have been published online, in journals, or in anthologies. It should NOT include dedications or private messages of appreciation. Most importantly, the acknowledgements MUST NOT be included in the manuscript, only in the cover letter on Submittable. It is crucial that you follow this requirement in order for us to follow the CLMP code of ethics for anonymous judging.
