Our goal has always been to publish the very best poetry and prose we can find in carefully-edited, hand-trimmed & hand-tied chapbooks; to work in close collaboration with authors through the production process; and to present a wide aesthetic range from both established and emerging writers.

Visit our website to read sample work from our authors. We're interested in your work, not your reputation, and have a special fondness for odd ducks. Reading periods are typically six weeks long for each of our open series. Especially interested in new & emerging voices from the widest possible range of experience.

Representative Authors: 

Crystal Boson, Ed Madden, Alyse Knorr, Oliver Baez Bendorf, Christina Pacosz, Guillermo Filice Castro, Allison Blevins, John Keene, Liz Ahl, Robin Reagler, Wayne Johns, Rodney Gomez, Sierra Golden, Marjorie Maddox, Jeff Oaks, Deborah Burnham, RJ Gibson, Mary Meriam, Boyer Rickel, JeFF Stumpo.

We are seeking beautifully-written, imaginative, and original short stories by new and veteran writers. Our favorite kinds of stories are those that are still emotionally haunting long after their plots have slipped from our memories, the fingerprints of their ghosts left behind on our day-to-day lives. 

Please read Submission Guidelines carefully.

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.

We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
