Editorial Focus

We publish innovative literary nonfiction. We are most interested in single essays that are too long to be easily published in journals or magazines, but too short to be considered book-length by most publishers.

Tips From the Editor

Please send complete, finished manuscripts. And please only send work that is substantial enough to stand alone as a short book. Please do not send academic or scholarly essays -- we are interested exclusively in creative writing.
