Editorial Focus

Unbound Edition Press champions honest, original voices. Committed to the power of the literary arts to explore and illuminate the contemporary human condition, it publishes collections of poetry, short fiction, and essays. It aims to identify, develop, and defend writers who create thoughtfully challenging work which may not find a home with mainstream publishers.

Tips From the Editor

The press is small and focused. We can publish only a few titles each year, so they must be remarkable. Each title is a personal choice, commitment and investment for us, and our mission guides the decisions we make. We are here to respect and elevate emerging, overlooked and LGBTQ+ authors, and to make meaningful contributions to the literary arts by publishing their work. 

When submitting, please fully read and understand our guidelines. Any submission not adhering to these requirements will be rejected without viewing. Submittable is the only way we receive submissions. We cannot accept any submission by email or post.
