The Literary House Press is the publishing arm of the Rose O’Neill Literary House at Washington College. We publish writers of national reputation and are particularly invested in supporting the work of women, LGBTQIA authors, and writers of color. During odd years, LHP publishes a limited-edition, letterpress book by an emerging or established author with ties to Maryland.  During even years, LHP releases a trade paperback anthology featuring contemporary American poets. The Literary House Press is also home to Cherry Tree: A National Literary Journal @ Washington College.

We do NOT read unsolicited manuscripts and submissions for books.

We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.

Proofread your work. Have others read your work. Then read it again.

The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.

Another New Calligraphy hopes to produce Impossible Task on a quarterly to bimonthly basis.
Number of Debut Authors per Issue: 
Varies

Another New Calligraphy's online journal publishes short works connected in its exploration of conflict, a term open to interpretation though ever present in these increasingly challenging times.

As in ANC's other endeavors, Impossible Task is always on the lookout for further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy and Impossible Task as a home for their work.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments.

Another New Calligraphy has published printed works since 2009. Commonalities include mental health, identity, culture, ecology, and personal reflection. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.
