Thank you for considering Etched Press as a home for your work. Please see the manuscript guidelines before submitting. We are particularly looking for poetry written in innovative formal styles (see NuFormal Series - open from June to December) and narrative prose poetry styles (see Prose Poetry Series - open from January to May), but we'll consider anything that is undeniably top-notch quality (see General Submissions - open year round). You can always submit for free if you buy a chapbook! Every even year we offer a summer contest that pays a cash prize along with free author copies (see Etched Press Poetry Series Contest in 2018). Look below to see which avenue your work best fits. Multiple submissions will be deleted.
Submit 48 to 80 pages of any style of poetry. We're particularly interested in project books of poetry focused on a single subject or two. All submissions considered; we only care about quality. Publication in print and the Kindle store. Please include an acknowledgements page within the manuscript and a brief bio in the cover letter box. Simultaneous submissions welcome. Please withdraw via submittable if accepted elsewhere.
Submit and receive a discount on any chapbook title in the catalog. Please select which title you would like on the submission page. This submission is open to any form. Submit sixteen to twenty-eight pages of poetry. Response time (1-2 months).
