Prose Manuscripts Wanted

Prose Manuscripts Wanted

An old-fashioned reading period. No reading fee on this one. Nightboat Books is considering prose manuscripts during June and July 2013. Please familiarize yourself with Nightboat Books’s editorial affinities by checking out our titles. Buy our books! Read them!

We're looking for innovative prose projects; no novels, no short-story collections.
Your manuscript might include poetry and poetic sections, but we we're not considering poetry collections at this time.

Please include the following with your manuscript:

(a) your name and contact information
(b) a short professional biography 
(c) a description of the book/project

and send via United States mail by July 31, 2013 to:

Nightboat Books
P.O. Box 10
Callicoon, NY 12723

Double-sided preferred. No fees. No limits.

But, a small caveat: we cannot be as generous as we would like by responding individually to confirm the receipt of your manuscript or to report on its status. Therefore, we will only contact you if we are interested in publishing it. If you don’t hear from us within four months, please assume that your manuscript did not meet our editorial needs. We are not able to return manuscripts. All manuscripts will be recycled.

We look forward to reading your work.
