SCP WebBooks is an online poetry chapbook series. The goal of the series is to showcase a modest sized collection of a single author’s work in professionally designed and formatted PDF files that are free to read online.
Check out previous books in the series here.

To submit to our WebBook series include 15-30 pages of original poetry in a single file (either .doc, .docx or .pdf).

In the document include a cover page with your name, email address, mailing address and the title of the collection. 

Please place each poem separately on their own page with their titles in bold.

Include any dedications, acknowledgments or previous publication credits at the beginning of the document.

Because the goal of this project is to make great poetry available to the public for free we cannot offer monetary payment at this time. However any author whose collection is accepted for publication will receive the following:

-Exposure to a lively and ever growing literary community via the SCP website and its various social media outlets.  

- Their work displayed in a handsome, professionally designed online chapbook complete with original covers and author endorsements. 

- A PDF marketing kit: A two paged PDF file that contains collection info (link, endorsement and samples), author info along with a link to author’s website or blog, as well as Seven CirclePress info. 
This file will be sent to an opt-in subscriber list of 500 authors, editors and presses. It will also be emailed to the author for their own distribution purposes.

Copyright Note:
Upon acceptance we ask for first-time online rights to publish the collection as a whole. After publication, rights revert to the author and they may submit individual poems for publication elsewhere. We do ask that you credit Seven CirclePress as the publisher for any poems whose first appearance was in the collection. You are also free to have your collection posted under certain Creative Commons licenses. Please feel free to send any questions to
