Editorial Focus

Galileo Press is 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

Some manuscripts are all Rachel Carson, or merely great. Some manuscripts are all skateboard, or merely a wild ride. We want Rachel Carson on a skateboard, about 22 seconds before she jakes it. Important update to our guidelines: a strong confident voice is no longer essential.
