April Gloaming Publishing is a Nashville-based independent press that aims to capture and better understand the Southern soul, Southern writing, and the Southern holler. 

In the words of William Faulkner, to be Southern is to, "Tell about the South. What do they do there. How do they live there. Why do they live at all." April Gloaming seeks to arrive at the conclusions to these questions through amplifying the voices of the unbridled holler.

We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.

We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We work to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing by publishing our authors in both digital and print simultaneously while offering higher royalties than the Big 5. We truly believe in a publisher / author partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.

The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.

Poets Reading the News is a digital platform that publishes original poetry about current events. We believe in the power of poetry to transform the world and how we see each other. We call it journalism in verse.

We are, at heart, a newspaper – the revelation being that our copy is pure verse, produced by a diverse staff of poet-journalists from around the world, spanning disciplines, views, and geographies. What it comes down to is gripping writing about the world around us and in us.

Poets Reading the News publishes unsolicited and original poetry and prose about current events. Whenever possible, include links to news stories regarding the topic of your work. If you are integrating quotes or data into your writing, you must provide links to your sources.

We encourage writers of all backgrounds to submit their writing, especially poets of color, women poets, LGBTQI+ poets, and poets from countries and regions near and far.

To get more information and submit your writing, please visit our website. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reading your poetry!

We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year.  Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist. We accept submissions year-round at foundlingszine@gmail.com. Much of our list is solicited, and it can take us quite a long time to respond to full-length submissions.

akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.
We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

akinoga press is currently closed for submissions/unsolicited manuscripts; check back in mid-2019 for the next reading period.

If you are familiar with the press and catalogue, and you feel like you have a manuscript/project that meshes with akinoga's aesthetics and mission, please keep the press in mind when the reading period is open again.
