Call for Novel Submissions from Women of Color: Shade Mountain Press

Shade Mountain Press seeks novel manuscripts by women of color: any topic, any style (as long as it’s literary rather than genre). Please email a query letter, containing a short synopsis of the novel and your bio, including publishing credits, if any, to:

submissionsATshademountainpressDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )

If we want to read further, we’ll request hard copy of a longer synopsis and the first ten pages or so.

Deadline: August 1, 2014

Shade Mountain Press is looking for literary fiction that’s politically engaged, that challenges the status quo and gender/class/race privilege. We look for work that’s wise, raucous, joyful, angry, alive. Both realism and its various alternatives (magic realism / fabulism / slipstream / the fantastic/ dystopianism) are welcome, as long as the work is literary rather than genre fiction.

For more information, please visit our website.
