Call for Poetry, Fiction and Scholarly Manuscripts: Willow Books

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.
