Submission Guidelines

SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
THE WILL REOPEN AGAIN FOR OUR SUMMER READING PERIOD MAY 1st.


Our goal is to publish a limited number of titles annually. We aim to produce well-made books, with an eye to the aesthetics of design, giving each project the careful attention required to make the publishing experience rewarding for the writer and the students and book professionals engaged in the process.


We’re interested in poetry, short stories, and essays, as well as novels and memoirs built on a strong compositional foundation. We are not necessarily looking for pieces that fit strict traditional modes, and especially enjoy writing that presents familiar subjects through unfamiliar perspectives, or defies categorization or easy definition. No conventional genre fiction, please.

  • We take time in considering all of our submissions and ask that you at least 6 months for a staff response.

  • All manuscripts should include a query letter and synopsis or overview of the work.

  • Authors are also invited to share information about their writing background, on-line presence, involvement with the writing community, and inspiration for their submission.

  • We accept both prose and poetry, and our ideal manuscript is between 50,000 and 100,000 words for prose, or 50-75 pages for poetry.

  • All attachments should be in either PDF or Word.doc formats.

  • Submissions may be made through our submissions manager (link below). Paper and email submissions are not accepted.

  • There is a $10 fee/submission.
