OPEN READING PERIOD NOW OPEN
Postmark Deadline: SEPTEMBER 2
Willow Books, the literary division of Aquarius Press, will be reading
unsolicited manuscripts beginning April 15, 2013. This reading period is
only for writers who have not previously been published by Aquarius
Press/Willow Books. Our mission is to develop, publish and promote
writers typically underrepresented in the market, and the reading period
is open to all writers from diverse cultural backgrounds. Poetry
manuscripts should be in the 48-96 page range, and fiction/nonfiction
should be no longer than 180 pages. Scholarly titles covering
literature, arts and the Humanities (up to 250 pages) are also accepted,
but they should be in proper format (MLA, APA, etc.).
This reading period is neither a contest nor is it exclusively for first
books. Rather, it is a time for us to review manuscripts by writers who
have not previously been published by our press. Genre/subject is open,
but no "street lit" or erotica, please.
$25.00 Reading Fee for all submissions.
If you wish to have us consider your manuscript, please upload a pdf to Submittable.com or visit this link:
