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.
