We are looking for non-fiction writing and photo essays about travel, broadly conceived. We are especially interested in pieces by writers and artists who are aware of the complicated space that writing about travel occupies. We do not shy away from the memoiristic or experimental.

For a sense of the kind of work we like, please look at our previous publications. Stories and essays run up to about 6000 words; photo essays typically include up to a dozen photos.

We publish interesting fiction, poetry, essays, and multimedia work from all over the world. However, preference is given to writers, artists, and subject matter with some connection to the South. We are particularly interested in work that uses conventions of traditional genres in new and interesting ways.

We don't want "traditional" Southern lit. We want literary and experimental work that touches on themes of interest to Southerners. Interpret that however you like, but DON'T assume this limits you to talking about trailers, hunting/fishing, fried food, and race relations. In fact, avoid talking about those things unless you have something really original to say about them. We get a lot more poetry submissions than fiction. Fiction has a better shot at being selected simply because it's more in demand. It should go without saying, but please read our submission guidelines, and use our online submission tracker. Also, please include a bio statement in your cover letter.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.

For over a decade, Relief has helped shape the landscapes of faith and imagination for readers around the world. We feature fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative, and reviews by some of today’s finest literary practitioners, alongside emerging voices.

Relief eschews tidy “inspirational” writing that represses the troublesome and complex dimensions of our lives. Instead we are dedicated to human flourishing through literature.

Above all, we want to be surprised, even thrilled, by work of artistic excellence—writing that shows the highest embodiment of craft while having something of deep importance to say.

Founded in January of 2006, Rose Metal Press is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit publisher whose mission is to produce beautiful books in hybrid genres, by which we mean short short stories, prose poetry, flash nonfiction, novels-in-verse, book-length linked narrative poems, image and text collaborations and other literary works that move beyond the traditional genres of poetry, fiction, and essay to find new forms of expression.

Please see our website for submission periods. We tend not to have them very often since we only put out 2 books a year, but we will likely have one in Summer 2020.

Representative Authors: 

Carol Guess,  Tim Jones-Yelvington,  Dinty W. Moore, Kelcey Parker Ervick, Del & Sofia Samatar, Nicole Rivas, Juditha Dowd, Maria Romasco Moore, David Carlin & Nicole Walker.

The A3 Press publishes work that is lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. Prose, poetry, illustration, photography and comics that are urgent and say something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history.  

Our first five titles were published in March 2019. All A3 Press titles have our signature A3 map-fold format. That's 42 x 29.7cm (approx 16.5" x 11.5").

We encourage you to visualise how you work will appear in our A3 map-fold format. Do consider the format of our publications when sending us work. Our chapbooks will look like maps, so you might want to send us work structured around a journey, or work about getting lost (or found). Each chapbook has about 14 panels, some of which may be taken up by images. If you have work that divides well into 12 sections, we want to see it! A series of 12 sonnets, for example, or a story told in 12 chapters?
