Stories that don't fit neatly in a box ... no matter the genre or form.
ADELAIDE BOOKS, an imprint of the Adelaide Literary Magazine, was founded in July 2017, with the aim to facilitate publishing of novels, memoirs, and collections of short stories, poems, and essays by contributing authors of our magazine.
We believe that in doing so, we best fulfill the mission outlined in Adelaide Magazine – “to promote writers we publish, helping both new and emerging, and established authors reaching a wider literary audience.”
“…leaving a book behind keeps your thoughts alive in this world forever. So, in some ways, your spirit never dies. It is the best way to achieve immortality.”
― Stevan V. Nikolic, Truth According to Michael

Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.
Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.
We love work that is linguistically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding of the reader. We want literary fiction that grows in complexity upon each visitation; we enjoy ornate, cerebral, and voluptuous prose executed with thematic intent. Writers we admire are Zadie Smith, Virginia Woolf, Tom Wolfe, Charles Dickens, Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Tom Stoppard, Vladimir Nabokov and James Baldwin.
Every piece published in AZURE appears alongside a customized black & white sketch that is devised and executed by our in-house illustrator.
We accept literary fiction, novel excerpts, creative non-fiction, screenplays, stageplays, fragments, meanderings, philosophy and poetry. We are not concerned with genre distinctions; we want only for it to be thoughtful, intelligent, and beautiful. All writers tend to develop a scrap heap of brilliant writing - sharp dialogue that has been cut in service of a plot, a philosophical tirade that can't quite be couched in a narrative, a stunning imagistic landscape of linguistic pyrotechnics that deserves an audience... literary beauty that cannot necessarily be expressed in more than bursts and fragments.
Raising Mothers was founded as a response to the lack of literary writing focused on mothers of color. Raising Mothers is a literary magazine for women of color and femmes of color who mother.
Raising Mothers publishes original, previously unpublished work that explores life and in turn how that affects us as parents and people. Work is accepted on an ongoing basis. Writing should be strong and engaging without being academic in tone.
We are a weekly e-zine with a focus on hybrid work and marginalized writers. Having trouble getting something published? We want to see it. Think prose that makes you want to get up and walk across the country, characters that make you want to shout at the pages in front of you, settings that make you want to run through them.
We are happy to look at submissions that are also under consideration elsewhere, but please wait to hear back before submitting additional work.
