Harvard Square Editions is looking for literary fiction of social and environmental value. Its mission is transcend national boundaries, publishing manuscripts that are international, political, literary, spiritual, sci-fi, fantasy, and dystopia. We appreciate aesthetic value and constructive social, spiritual or political content, especially manuscripts dealing with climate change and awareness. We do not appreciate gratuitous levels of profanity and violence.

We are seeking: vivid imagery and the balance of abstract to concrete imagery, the capacity to surprise, an elastic syntax, pace, and music, thematic cohesiveness and the emotional range and maturity, deft handling of highly charged emotion, use of wit, humor, and self-implication, choice and use of extended metaphor, skillfully juxtaposing the micro and the macro, and more.

All comers welcome.

Unlike our late Spring reading period, manuscripts should be buttoned up and ready to sail. We hope to add three titles to our 20-21 catalog. $500 on signing, color cover, standard royalty, additional support as needed.

Please note an important update to our guidelines: a strong confident voice is no longer essential.

David Fenza, Joe Bolton, Sarah Gorham, Matthew Graham, Patricia Grossman, John Drano, Steven Cramer, etc.

We strive to assemble a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We are committed to publishing literature and art that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.

Read the guidelines carefully, and follow them.

For issue #4, we are adding a themed dossier on “Connections.” Explore this idea in any way you choose: connections between individual people who have close relationships with each other, or between groups of people across national boundaries; connections between humans and the natural world; connections between ideas, historical periods, different arts; connections we haven’t thought of. Be sure to submit within the appropriate section and identify the genre of the submission in the title. Also please follow the guidelines for that genre.
