Tips From the Editor

We hold two reading periods for unsolicited submissions, and one reading period for our first book competition:

- In the spring, we accept unsolicited submissions between 1 March and 30 June. Our spring open reading guidelines: unicorn-press.org/submit

- In the fall, we accept unsolicited submissions between 1 September and 31 December. Our fall open reading guidelines: unicorn-press.org/submit

- Our first book competition is open between 1 April and 31 May. The author of the winning manuscript will be awarded $1000 and publication by Unicorn Press. Note that the first book competition, unlike our open reading period, does charge a reading fee. Our first book competition guidelines: unicorn-press.org/submit/first-book.html
