Editorial Focus

We're flexible and have broad taste. Though most of our books in print are poetry chapbooks, we remain open to publishing anything the editor loves.

Tips From the Editor

Currently closed to unsolicited manuscripts. Any sent anyway might eventually be read and considered, but it may take a year or more for us to get to you if we do at all. No guarantees, no apologies. We prefer e-mail submissions, though excellent snail mail submissions may also be considered, especially if they are under 20 pages. Send a Word document of from 5 to 20 pages to jc@crisischronicles.com — and then please be patient. Simultaneous submissions are permitted, as long as you notify Crisis Chronicles Press immediately if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere.
