My goal for Sheila-Na-Gig online is to continue to support the work of both established and emerging poets in a crisp, uncluttered space. Poets entering our quarterly poetry contests or chapbook contests should familiarize themselves with our aesthetic.

Sheila-Na-Gig online publishes well-crafted free verse poetry. We especially seek poems with excellent imagery and a strong sense of voice.

“The Library is a sphere whose exact center is any hexagon and whose circumference is unattainable,” states Jorge Luis Borges in his tale of sacred geometry and information science, The Library of Babel. It may be said that we take as our starting point this exact center, focusing arbitrarily yet intently on any hexagon which presents itself to our mundane perceptions, and expanding upon the disorientation extracted therefrom until nothing is left of language but its abstract scaffolding...

Our motto: No bullshit, just books. And that's true. We are selective and looking for high quality, accessible fiction, excluding the fantasy genre. Can be genre based, so long as it is not campy. Short story collections and novellas are welcome. We are constantly looking for poetry collections and chapbooks. We published chapbooks 25-30 pages. We want creative nonfiction in the form of book-length journalism, memoirs and experimental forms.

Do not send more than one submission at a time. Do tell us who you are. Do wow us. Do be prepared to promote yourself; we do a lot of promotion, but you need to be business-writer ready when you come to us.

Essay Press holds print chapbook contests in the summer and print book contests in the fall. We particularly welcome manuscripts that extend or challenge the formal range of nonfiction—including, but not limited to, lyric essays and prose poems/poetics; experimental biography and autobiography; innovative approaches to journalism, experimental historiography, criticism, scholarship and philosophy. Simultaneous submissions, multiple submissions, collaborative manuscripts, digital and hybridized text/art manuscripts all are encouraged.

Work/chapters/individual essays may have been previously published in other publications, such as periodicals, although editors encourage submissions that include new material.

Ananke Press is a small, independent press in New York City with the focus on smart speculative fiction. We welcome odd and unexpected stories, masterfully crafted with the love of language in mind. Ananke Press is a member of IBPA; we offer a traditional contract.

Ananke Press is a selective press. Number of previous publications is unimportant; what matters is the quality of the work. We like intelligent and unconventional projects. If you are finding it difficult to fit your novel on a prescribed shelf, it might find a home with us.
