Any manuscript received outside of this reading period will not be considered.
Authors can send hard copy manuscripts printed on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. Please do not send your only copy as we will not return rejected manuscripts. Please enclose an SASE or postcard for acknowledgment of receipt. We recommend an organized collection of poems, essays, short stories or a novella of 40 to 70 pages. Most of our books are under 100 pages, including front and back matter. The smallest perfect bound trade paper book is approximately 45 pages. Manuscripts that exceed 100 pages will have to be exceptional, especially fiction and non fiction.
The manuscript should include publication credits and any relevant biographical information. For fiction, a synopsis is helpful.
