Chapbooks Online: Some History
Chapbooks Online is operated by Wordrunner Publishing Services whose first print chapbooks appeared in 1997. Over 100 chapbooks by self-publishing authors have been produced since then. See Wordrunner Chapbooks for a list of authors and production details.
In 2008, Wordrunner Electronic Chapbooks brought out its first quarterly chapbook zine on www.echapbook.com. Chapbook length collections of poetry, fiction and memoir are published on this site four times a year. For submissions guidelines, see www.echapbook.com/submissions.htm.
The next logical step was to establish an attractive, easily accessible venue for self-published electronic chapbooks. Chapbooks Online is a start-up for the new decade. We look forward to a growing library of work and more good reading from authors who are serious about their craft.
