As Folded Word has grown, its submissions queue has also grown. In fact it has grown to a point that we need more readers than our free Submittable (Submishmash) account will allow. This has led to the difficult decision to charge a reading fee beginning 1 June 2012 (at 12:01 a.m. Pacific for those thinking of sneaking in one last free submission). Prose and Mosaic book submissions will now require a $5 reading fee, but submitters will receive their choice of any e-book from our list. Chapbook submissions will now require a $7 reading fee, but submitters will receive their choice of any Green Edition (print) chapbook from our list. By supporting our press in this way, you will also be supporting our authors (who will receive royalties when their books are chosen) and facilitating faster response times for everyone who is (or will be) in the submissions queue.
Please note that submissions to unFold, our poetry e-zine, are still free and should be emailed to Rose Auslander at poetry [at] foldedword [dot] com. Complete guidelines for unFold may be found on our website.
As a reminder, our book-length print list is full through 2014. We are still reading for eBooks in our Prose and Mosaic lines. We are also still reading for both print and e- Chapbooks. Complete details for all our projects may be found at:
