Editorial Focus

Mount Hope publishes new and emerging writers alongside established writers. The editors enjoy finding new, diverse writers they can introduce to publication.

Tips From the Editor

Heavy genre such as sci-fi and fantasy probably isn’t for us. Gauzy reminiscences of childhood hold less interest for us unless it has relevance to the reader now. Tell a story that matters in the cultural moment we occupy. Please format your manuscript properly, with your name and email address on the document itself. While we are fine on multiple submissions, we urge writers not to overdo it.
