We seek to publish gifted writers whose works are under-represented by corporate marketing. We are partial to the writer who possesses a gift for compassionate, sharp-eyed truth-telling, rendering fully formed characters and stories that get under our skin. Ones that push hard to discover the kind of truth that exposes the reality of our deepest humanity.

Another New Calligraphy publishes handmade books and music. We have enjoyed the quiet thrill of making and sharing since 2009.

Another New Calligraphy guides writers and musicians in the realization, documentation, and promotion of their work. By providing our releases with a singular visual and tactile presence, we hope to deliver small moments of wonder outside the great media overload. Our catalog strives to showcase marginalized voices without exploiting the stories they tell or the communities they represent.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work comfortable within its own space, rather than making concessions to convention or attempts at mass accessibility. Please familiarize yourself with some of our recent projects. Commonalities include identity, mental health, history, cultural studies, and respect for the natural world. The music we have released exemplifies but a small portion of what we would love to help bring to life.

Given the philosophy behind our books and their production, we prefer shorter written material. While our niche may seem primarily of a poetic nature, we always have our eyes on other modes of expression. We are currently on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, and are most interested in thematically linked manuscripts rather than generalized collections.

Vagabonds is a literary journal that is published twice a year. We harbor the mad ones. People who are dedicated to their work to the point that they become misunderstood, or seen as a hot mess of crazy. Our journal does not seek to break boundaries, we want to break boundaries and go farther. We want the shameless—the deep dark, cigarettes and dirty words combo. Although there is not a set theme of what we’re looking for, we often look at slice-of-life works.

Red Flag Poetry is a postcard project that aims to deliver poetry to the mailbox of subscribers every month on a postcard. We look for poetry that is creative, original, and well crafted. We want to see poems that criticallly reflect life and force us to feel the weight of the world or your world. 

Please limit each poem to 22 lines maximum with no more than 50 characters per line. These guidelines are somewhat flexible, but keep in mind this has to go on a 4x6 postcard

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

S & H Publishing has one goal in mind - providing quality books for our readers. We constantly search for talented writers. Our aim is to provide our authors with many of the advantages of having a publisher, while letting them retain much of the freedom of a self-published author. Just as the contemporary woman is not restricted by genre or age, talent is not restricted by distance or national borders. We pride ourselves on our international community of talented writers.

Please read our submission guidelines. We tailor our style sheet to the country of the author.
