Submission Guidelines

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 we select the careful attention required to make the publishing experience rewarding for the writer and the students and book professionals engaged in the process.


We take time in considering all of our submissions and ask that you allow 3-6 months for a staff response.

All manuscripts should include a query letter, synopsis, and an 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 work.

Only complete manuscripts of literary fiction (either a novel or a short story collection; no genre submissions), narrative non-fiction (a collection of linked essays or memoir), and poetry are accepted.

Our ideal manuscript is between 50,000 and 100,000 words of prose or 50-75 pages of poetry. All attachments should be in either PDF or Word .doc formats.

We do not accept paper submissions.

**There is a $5 fee/submission to offset costs associated with our submission manager**
