Fruit Bat Press is a handmade, limited edition chapbook press that is co-based in Chicago and Los Angeles. Fruit bats inspire us because they are dark and sweet at the same time—and they are expert foragers. We are committed to publishing work that embraces foraging: an unusual collection of ideas from a diverse set of perspectives with a basket of different emotions.
Tips From the Editor
- The book must be between 20-40 pages. Any style is welcome within that page count (prose collections, poetry, novella, dramatic).
- And, this year we are accepting artwork! 20-40 page collections that include images, artwork, or text-prose combinations are welcome.
- Only one submission per person. There will be a $7 reading fee to support the cost of making the books. If you need to request a fee waiver, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will be announced in early April and books will be published in June 2022. :)
