Submissions are currently on hold during reorganization, so if you submit a query, you will most likely not get a response. You can sign up for submissions notification, with your email in the submit box at the lower right below. When we re-open submissions, we will notify you by email of an online submissions process.
A query requires a brief description of the work, your name, full address, phone number, etc and an excerpt of your work – 5 pages of poetry, up to 10 pgs of prose – copied into an email message or send one word file attached to an email message. Do not mail anything. We will let you know if we want to see a whole manuscript.
We are selective, receive between 3 and 5 queries a day and will publish about thirty books this year.
