Our mission is share poetry through collections presented as an "origami" microchap.  We publish a quarterly newsletter to let our subcribers learn of the new microchaps.  We also hold an annual contest.

We enjoy writing that is insightful and leaning towards the positive.  Don't leave us in a bottomless pit of remorse!  The microchaps can showcase a poet's oeuvre in 6 brief poems or one longer poem.

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.

We're flexible and have broad taste. Though most of our books in print are poetry chapbooks, we remain open to publishing anything the editor loves.

Currently closed to unsolicited manuscripts. Any sent anyway might eventually be read and considered, but it may take a year or more for us to get to you if we do at all. No guarantees, no apologies. We prefer e-mail submissions, though excellent snail mail submissions may also be considered, especially if they are under 20 pages. Send a Word document of from 5 to 20 pages to jc@crisischronicles.com — and then please be patient. Simultaneous submissions are permitted, as long as you notify Crisis Chronicles Press immediately if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

Founded in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the premier independent publishers in the country. It is our intention to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish introspective works of creative non–fiction, fiction & poetry.

We are a small press with big ideas set on publishing substance over flash. We routinely work with authors who don’t fit neatly into the corporate publishing model, giving a voice to the countless independent thinkers currently neglected by the mainstream media.

A Letter from the Founder, L.M. Browning

I founded Homebound Publications to bring together a community of like-minded thinkers and see what the dialogue yielded. I didn’t have any sense of how big the press would grow or how widely our titles would be shared, I simply carved out a space in which others could speak and share those deep thoughts they’d pondered. I have always been an ardent believer in creative minds requiring a circle of fellows to push them. The discussion, the inspiration, the contemplation, and the community encourages the kind of boundary-pushing, ego destruction, and refinement of beliefs that bring about movements of change in the larger world. 

Representative Authors: 

We are seeking titles with special focus on spirituality, education, regional interest, history, personal growth, self-help, and ecological. (We have a soft spot for books about our native region of New England.) Authors representative of the work we seek would be: Barry Lopez, Joanna Macy, Gary Snyder, David Abram, Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, Annie Dillard, David Whyte, Cheryl Strayed, Jack Kerouac, Walt Whitman, and Henry David Thoreau.
