Submission Guidelines

We do NOT publish previously published chapbooks!

Only a third (1/3) of your manuscript can be previously published. Say you have 23 poems and you divide it by three, that means you can only submit a manuscript with 7.666666666666667 previously published poems. And you might as well drop the iffy .666666666666667 poem. It's unfinished and you didn't really like it anyway.

If, however, your submission has never been published before (for the most part), then by all means, read on...

1. Does the font and font size really matter to you?

Yes; please use a size 12 font and a Serif font type.

2. What about the page?

The page size must be 6 inches by 9 inches. The title of the poem must be in bold with 2 spaces between the body of the poem.

3. Page count?

Yes: 16-36, excluding the title page, TOC, index, and acknowledgement pages.

4. Content and theme?

We don't publish by subjects. (Honestly, there's nothing worse than a publishing house with open submissions but is only looking for works about Siamese cats of all things.)

5. When are submissions open?

August 1st 12:00 a.m.-January 1st 11:59 p.m. MST annually. No exceptions.

6. Accepted file types?

We will gladly accept attached submission in the following file types: .PDF, .ODT, .DOC, .DOCX, and GDOC.
