Editorial Focus

The Literary House Press is the publishing arm of the Rose O’Neill Literary House at Washington College. We publish writers of national reputation and are particularly invested in supporting the work of women, LGBTQIA authors, and writers of color. During odd years, LHP publishes a limited-edition, letterpress book by an emerging or established author with ties to Maryland.  During even years, LHP releases a trade paperback anthology featuring contemporary American poets. The Literary House Press is also home to Cherry Tree: A National Literary Journal @ Washington College.

Tips From the Editor

We do NOT read unsolicited manuscripts and submissions for books.
