We plan to read submissions and choose a handful of books to publish during 2016, depending on how many enjoy.

Please read and follow all of the guidelines below when submitting.

• There is a $13 reading fee for all manuscripts. Please send money to via pay pal and include the transaction number in your submission email.
• Manuscripts should be between 40 and 100 pages. We prefer longer collections to chaps.
• Please include page numbers, title page, dedication page if you want one and an acknowledgements section for all previously published work.

We will get back to you with a decision within a month (by March 15th).
