This category is to submit unpublished BOOK-LENGTH POETRY MANUSCRIPTS, targeted at adults, to consider for the Electric Book Award and open-reading publication on our press. This is NOT the place for individual poems.
Each submission comes with a complimentary digital copy of our latest poetry release, We Meant to Bring It Home Alive, poems of isolation, distance, communication, and understanding across the expanse, by Armin Tolentino.
$5.99: Regular reading fee. This will come with a standard form response.

Before you request feedback, read this paragraph.
•Do not put your name or any identifying marks inside the file, in the title, or in the file name.
•No cover pages with identifying information or acknowledgments within the file.
•While we will read and consider manuscripts of any length, we do not regularly publish slim chapbooks. We recommend submitting manuscripts with at least 40 poems, and we are not the best home for collections of fewer than 20 poems.
We pay for all the work we accept.
