SUBMIT TO The Chapbook Contest




The editorial board at Epiphany take their mission statement to heart, and they are as good as its word. They understood what I was attempting from the start, valued both form and content equally with story when they first found my unsolicited offering in their mail.  Personally, I can chart my  progress in publishing back to the first response I received from Willard Cook, and since then, I’ve treasured the support, advocacy and encouragement they’ve given me since.  Epiphany is exactly the sort of community a writer hopes he or she finds, in among the bramble.       

- Domingo Martinez, author of Boy Kings of Texas
