The reading period for full-length poetry manuscripts is now open.
As a new independent literary press devoted exclusively to poetry we're excited to consider all types of work, and are open to submissions, both full-length as well as chapbook manuscripts. We hold contests for both, but are happy to consider collections outside of the contests, if you can submit within the following guidelines:
Be sure your name and contact information is on the cover page of the document.
PDFs are the preferred format (and can be created through the "print" options in most word processing programs).
Please have any cover letter or bio associated with the submission in the body of the email.
All manuscripts should have a table of contents, page numbers, and acknowledgments.
Please note that we are only interested in manuscripts of poetry. Manuscripts of fiction, nonfiction, essay, biography, etc. will not be replied to.
All submission can be emailed to us at editors(at)cooperdillon.com (replace (at) with @)
In the subject line of the email, please use the following format: "Submission by [ your name]."
All manuscripts will be considered carefully and replied to in a reasonable amount of time. If it's been more than a month, feel free to send an email.
