Editorial Focus

Calla Press is dedicated to publishing Christian prose, poetry, creative nonfiction, and flash fiction. While one’s work does not need to be directly Christian, it must be tactful to the mission statement. Calla Press accepts work from emerging and established writers. Please wait two weeks after your acceptance/pass email to submit new work after your initial submission. Calla Press is part of the Calla Press Publishing LLC ministry, where they publish pure, lovely, and noble books.

Tips From the Editor

The summer collection is released online the first week of June, and the winter collection the first week of December. Occasionally, the publisher will announce an upcoming print journal, so you may subscribe to their newsletter via Substack.
