Editorial Focus

Baobab Press seeks books that communicate and support their themes through new and well-articulated means. They like risk. They like invention. More importantly, they look for a quality of thought that adds depth to a writer’s concerns. And although it is not an official requirement, they tend to select literary work with a strong sense of place at its core.

Tips From the Editor

  • Collections or novels that do not fall within the noted page ranges will not be read.
  • We appreciate cover letters but keep them simple.
  • Check for “Track Changes” in your documents before submitting.
  • Many well-written collections of poetry and short fiction are passed over because the entries do not demonstrate a range in tone.
  • You got this.
