Dalkey Archive Press is a nonprofit organization whose mission is the preservation of literary works of art through publication. We primarily publish literary fiction, rarely poetry or non-fiction, and place a heavy emphasis upon fiction that belongs to the experimental tradition of Sterne, Joyce, Rabelais, Flann O’Brien, Beckett, Gertrude Stein, and Djuna Barnes.
Civil Coping Mechanisms (CCM) is a DIY kind of press. We take the same level of angst as our brethren in shunning those that would be in the immediate position of neglecting our efforts as artisans. Why not do it our way? We want literary objects infused with otherness: So new, so different, that they renovate our notion of what literature can be.
We are always looking for innovative fiction. We prefer to see completed work so no excerpts or proposals. Short story collections rank fairly low on our list of demands. We would prefer to see something whole rather than in bits and pieces.
Assisi’s mission is, first and foremost, to publish works of literature and art that are thoughtful, engaging, and well written/composed. We look for work that examines the human condition, that helps the reader view things from a slightly different angle, and that provokes an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world.

Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work, in all forms, and we are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work. We want the pieces that challenged you as a writer, what you poured yourself into and risked the most to make. But we also want your tenderest, gentlest work, what you hold closest to your heart. Whatever you’re working on now that’s keeping you alive and writing, Foglifter wants to read it.

We are a non-institutional aggregator of mediocre literature. We aren't as off the wall as we are on the floor. While our editors continue their efforts to undermine each other, we're on a hunt for beavers eager to usurp the traps and give the literary world a bathetic run for its money.
Be crass if you think we can't handle your genius.
If you send a fish sandwich with your hard copy submission, you will be moved to the top of the pile. However, doing so does not guarantee publication.

We receive 800 manuscripts a year, many of them of high quality, & publish maybe 1% of those submissions. Competition is steep, so send us your very best work.
