Editorial Focus

Essay Press is now reading for its first open-book contest, to be judged by Essay author Kristin Prevallet. We particularly welcome book-length manuscripts that extend or challenge the formal range of nonfiction—including, but not limited to, lyric essays and prose poems/poetics; experimental biography and autobiography; innovative approaches to journalism, experimental historiography, criticism, scholarship and philosophy. Simultaneous submissions, multiple submissions, collaborative manuscripts, digital and hybridized text/art manuscripts all are encouraged.

Tips From the Editor

Work/chapters/individual essays may have been previously published in other publications, such as periodicals, although editors encourage submissions that include new material.
