Hidden Timber Books is a small press in Milwaukee, WI that publishes simple but powerful writing, stories put to the page because the words and characters and experiences burned inside the author. We love fiction, narrative nonfiction, poetry and prose that speak to a passion for recording the truth of a time, stories that are rooted in place and offer readers social and historical context, cultural and philosophical insights.
We are currently open for submissions until April 30, 2021, looking for literary fiction or narrative nonfiction in the form of a novel, a memoir, or a collection (short stories, essays, or hybrid).
We are a small press with a very small crew, so we love finished manuscripts that have been well-worked and revised. We find that the best manuscripts come from writers who have spent time in community with other writers in group critique or with outside editors.
