akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION

The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.

Ornithopter Press is an independent publisher of poetry that runs counter to the mainstream.

Does your work challenge literary norms? Are you excited by experimentation, inclusiveness, diversity? Do you have a manuscript that’s moved beyond the draft stage and feels complete? If so, Ornithopter Press might be right for you.

Longship Press publishes the literary journal Nostos once each year. Through Nostos, we publish poetry, short fiction, and art usually on a theme. We hope to print several pieces by any one author in order to offer readers a sample of an author's voice, style, point of view, etc. Additionally, we publish chapbooks and full poetry collections by individual authors, including Meryl Natchez, Lisa Rappoport, David Rollison, and Terry Lucas. 

Check the website www.longshippress.com for information regarding solicitations. Check the theme description especially.
