OPEN READING PERIOD DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 2
Willow Books, the literary division of Aquarius Press, will be accepting
unsolicited manuscripts through midnight September 2, 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.
If you wish to have us consider your manuscript, please upload a .pdf file to Submittable.
