For 2019 we are seeking poetry and hybrid prose/poetry collections and collections of short stories or lyric essays. I’d like to see more poems that gather in with “long arms,” to borrow Ellen Bass’ description of Frank X. Gaspar’s work, and more somatic awareness, like Ire’ne Lara Silva’s Blood Sugar Canto.

Please submit only in response to a call for submissions. Please use Submittable.

Representative Authors: 

Jessamyn Smyth, The Inugami Mochi. Ire'ne Lara Silva, Blood Sugar Canto. Jendi Reiter, Two Natures. Stefan Kiesbye, The Staked Plains. Ruth Thompson, Woman With Crows. Don Mitchell, A Red Woman Was Crying.

Poetry of social protest. I like poetry that "misappropriates" ancient spiritual wisdom. I like risque poetry. Think Neruda, Lorca. I like troubled lives that heal.

Please send a representative sample of poems (5-10) before sending an entire manuscript. Send an inquiry and a bio that tells me who you are, your accomplishments, your journey.

“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.
