If you are an agent representing an author, you may make your fee-free pitch here. IF YOU ARE NOT AN AGENT REPRESENTING AN AUTHOR, THEN THIS PORTAL IS NOT FOR YOU.


Please note: We are seeking literary, historical, science, rural, timeliness, sense of place, social causes and awareness, poetry, Indigenous voices, and highly poetic, intelligent craft. We're interested in novels, novellas, story collections, play scripts, hybrid, literary memoir, creative nonfiction, essay collections, and poetry collections. We especially like work that is linked or themed or has an interesting hook.


We do not consider metaphysics or quack sciences. We do not publish textbooks. We only publish books geared toward adults: no children's books, picture books, middle grade, young adult, or new adult. We have a highly literary readership and are not the best place for commercial works or genre works that are not also literary. No religion, erotica, or genre romance. We are a highly liberal venue and are absolutely not the place for any conservative or right-wing ideas. We emphatically do not print Christian fiction. We are a Black Lives Matter, MeToo, and LGBTQ+ safe space.


We pay 50/50 royalties for the work we publish, but please understand that advances are < $1,000. This isn't negotiable because we can't magically make funds appear, so if it's a problem right out the gate, please don't query.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
