WHAT WE LOOK FOR
We publish high-quality literary fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and short-story anthologies. We consider submissions in all genres, including action-adventure, urban contemporary, biography, memoir, high-quality romance and women’s literature, children’s stories, young adult, satire, mystery, historical fiction, thrillers, humor, philosophy, and educational works.
Ensure your work is carefully edited for spelling, grammar, and syntax (reliable advice is available—please use it!). We are looking for timeless, engaging, fulfilling works that will be just as vibrant and satisfying years from now as they are today.
We are actively seeking works from black and minority writers. If you believe in your work, but aren't sure if it will meet our criteria, please submit it. Don’t be afraid to send us a good story that would benefit from the polishing skills of our editorial staff.
