Red Hen Press is committed to publishing work of literary excellence, supporting diversity, and promoting literacy in our local schools. We seek a community of readers and writers who are actively engaged in the essential human practice known as literature.

At this time we are especially interested in considering new novels and narrative-driven nonfiction.

We are especially interested in collections that use language to dramatize a singular vision of experience, a mastery of craft, a deep knowledge of poetic tradition, and a willingness to take risks. The series is oriented toward free verse, but we will happily consider other forms.

Parlor Press also publishes creative nonfiction and fiction but submissions are by invitation only. The data listed here refers to the Free Verse Editions Series, edited by Jon Thompson. We are launching a new series on poetics called "Illuminations" in 2017.

Mayapple Press is a small literary press founded in 1978 by poet and editor Judith Kerman. We focus on literature not often celebrated by either the mainstream or the avant-garde. This includes poetry which is both challenging and accessible; women’s writing; Great Lakes/Northeast literature; the immigrant experience; science fiction poetry; Jewish literature; and poetry in translation.

We ONLY accept unsolicited submissions during our open periods, which are generally in summer but not every year. Please watch our Submissions page for open periods, and then submit using Submishmash, our online submissions program. Please do not submit except during open periods.

We do not accept hard-copy or email submissions, although email queries are fine.

Representative Authors: 

William Heyen, Eleanor Lerman, Jeannine Hall Gailey, Allison Joseph, Geof Hewitt, Conrad Hilberry, Howard Schwartz, Myra Sklarew, Chris Green, Brian Aldiss, Dennis Hinrichsen, Gerry LaFemina and Judith Minty.

Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every 17 years. Here at Visitant, we have created a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your art—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send us your work! https://visitantlit.com/contact

We are accepting submissions of flash fiction, serialized fiction, non-fiction essays, multimedia essays, poetry, art, and interviews. Submissions should be limited to 1,500 words. If you are interested in submitting a longer piece, we may still be able to publish it in serialized format (please see this example: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-coven-in-essex-county-part-1). Please send all submissions to visitantlit AT gmail DOT com. Please attach your submission as a Word document and include a short biographical statement in the body of your email.
