We accept submissions for our online journal, All Roads Will Lead You Home, year-round. We now publish submissions as they are accepted.
We currently publish full length print collections (48+ pages) in two series, purple flag and strawberry hedgehog. We launched purple flag in 2014 as an invitation only series and added strawberry hedgehog in 2016 to reopen the press to unsolicited manuscripts. Beginning in March 2017, we welcome submissions for both series via our online submission manager. Complete guidelines are available here.
We also publish digital chapbooks (usually about 20 pages) in our nodding onion series, which is available through Google Play.
