Editorial Focus

We are seeking: vivid imagery and the balance of abstract to concrete imagery, the capacity to surprise, an elastic syntax, pace, and music, thematic cohesiveness and the emotional range and maturity, deft handling of highly charged emotion, use of wit, humor, and self-implication, choice and use of extended metaphor, skillfully juxtaposing the micro and the macro, and more.

All comers welcome.

Tips From the Editor

Unlike our late Spring reading period, manuscripts should be buttoned up and ready to sail. We hope to add three titles to our 20-21 catalog. $500 on signing, color cover, standard royalty, additional support as needed.

Please note an important update to our guidelines: a strong confident voice is no longer essential.
