A chapbook is a small self published work of poetry. Usually 16-32 pages or so folded in half and stapled with a cover. They can be elaborate and fancy or simple and cheaply made.
Most contests offer a cash prize and also maybe a specific amount of copies for you to share with your friends. (or you could sell them).
For fun and promoting your name. You could use it as a spring board to a manuscript too for a larger collection possibly.
I haven't ever bought a chapbook I didn't like, but maybe I am lucky?
