Our goal is to publish books that are accessible to everyone, combining our desire to educate and our love of quality books with an interest in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, music, art, design, history and photography. We are enthused about our books, as we hope others would be, to read them and own them as lovely books.

Please view our website for complete submission guidelines. We appreciate a profession presentation of the project with photo, bio, synopsis of manuscript, and previous publishing history... hardcopy or digital version.

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.

As a startup, we began with word of mouth and the reach of new media. Both editors have been teaching at the City University of New York for over a decade, and see our influence inflected by the work of our colleagues at the university—as diverse a constituency as can be imagined—as well as by our students themselves, some of whom have published with us. We are interested in writers from Borges to Lafcadio Hearn to Esmeralda Santiago, Ariel Dorfman to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to you, threading a diaspora of difference.

So far, a majority of writers we've published have been first-time writers, in keeping with our editorial mission.

Please see our complete editorial statement here: http://www.flatbushreview.com/editorial-.... We welcome all arts and approaches, and strive to be as inclusive and diverse in our approaches as the words linked through our namesake avenue in Brooklyn, although we are not limited to that physical landscape. It's a Coney Island of the mind, after all.

See our editorial focus, and look over our online issues at flabushreview.com. We're open to anything, not bounded by the literal geography of Brooklyn but by the conceptual complexity represented by its internal artery, Flatbush Avenue. Each issue has a kind of theme, always loosely and imaginatively interpreted, or ignored altogether (although it might inform our decision-making on a particular issue, and we will always consider all submissions for future issues). The point is to be as searching and challenging, reflective and reaching as possible, connecting worlds, geographies, topographies of the mind, spirit, and body as widely as we can, with that O'Haraean grace to live as variously as possible. We want to open dialogues, not foreclose possibilities.

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.
