Event Details

We accept chapbook-length to full book manuscripts between 25 and 80 pages. We are open to different genres and forms, including poetry, fiction and nonfiction prose, and especially experimental, hybrid and collaborative pieces. Inventive works that disassemble meaning, rethink artistic and narrative spaces, and create new landscapes visually, sonically or cognitively excite us. Writing that resists and rebels. Manuscripts that are inquisitive, urgent and evocative. Work that is humanizing and radical and necessary in the world. Collections that cohere or fragment; language that takes risks, surprises, entertains and delights us; literary expressions that push boundaries and scatter the universe. Linguistic gatherings, reckonings and cross-pollinations.

We encourage writers of all backgrounds to submit. In particular, we welcome writers and artists of color, women, LGBTQ+ and other marginalized and emerging voices in our communities.
