Tips From the Editor

Writers hoping for an opportunity to submit can subscribe to the mailing list or check the press website for submissions calls and updates to guidelines. Ornithopter Press considers manuscripts received during open reading periods. Does your work challenge literary norms? If you haven't already done so, it would be a good idea to read some work published by the press before you decide to submit. Further information can be found online and through social media, etc.  An independent publisher of poetry that runs counter to the mainstream.... Yes, that remains true.
