We are best known for publishing poetry, but we also publish novels, novellas, short story collections, and essay collections. Guidelines are on website. There is a limited reading period for all prose book submissions.

Tips From the Editor

It's helpful if you are familiar with the press you are querying. An author also needs to be willing to assist with marketing ahead of publication as well as afterward--do readings, etc.--if a book is to be successful.
