Submission Guidelines

BECAUSE OF MY DECAYING MEMORY AND MY DIABETES, I WILL BE PUBLISHING FEWER BOOKS. I’M SORRY ABOUT THIS, BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE. I WILL STILL PUBLISH THE ANTHOLOGY AND CONTINUE TO HOST THE ANGELA CONSOLO MANKIEWICZ POETRY PRIZE, BUT I’M LEANING MORE AND MORE TOWARDS POETS WHO WANT 100 BOOKS AT A TIME (BULK ORDERS).

SO CONTACT ME AND PITCH YOUR IDEA.

PLEASE, NO SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS!
