Black Sun Lit is a print and digital literary press that endeavors to introduce, promote, and support both emerging and experienced writers whose work has little representation—or minimal exposure—in a reading world largely governed by commercial publishing. 

As of May 20, 2016, Black Sun Lit no longer accepts unsolicited book manuscripts.

Furniture Press is a publisher of strangely poetical texts and ephemera, all which play at (but are not limited to) intertextuality and appropriation. Some want to call it poetry, but poetry can express many differing, sometimes conflicting and contradictory concepts. This is what we thrive on: the ambiguation of art and its likenesses. Our poetics follows this process closely, and we look for similar aesthetics in the writers we choose to publish and promote.

Please query with 3–5 poems and cover letter before sending longer series/collections.

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.

Cagibi is invested in sharing the universal human experiences to be found in works of prose and poetry set within places unfamiliar to readers; thus, our expressed interest in international—or world—literature, and works in translation. Cagibi is versatile in its purpose and mission to readers and writers. The journal concerns literature in which character conflict, ultimately story, is tied to place.

JuxtaProse is an online literary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction and poetry from around the world. Our contributors have included Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and Man Booker Prize winners, and other acclaimed authors from fifteen different countries. Alongside these established voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging authors -- including students and previously unpublished authors. Each of our quarterly issues reaches over 10,000 readers.

We believe that good storytelling begins with character. While we will consider any story that possesses literary merit, genre fiction is not our emphasis and will be a particularly difficult sell.

We currently publish approximately 3% of the fiction submissions, 4% of the nonfiction submissions, and less than 1% of the poetry submissions we receive.
