Primary editor/Contact person
Brighthorse Books publishes 3-5 literary books per year in the areas of poetry, short story collections, and novels.
Submissions mostly come through our yearly contest. We choose a winning manuscript in poetry, short fiction collections, and the novel, awarding a prize of $1,000 to each winner. In addition, we sometimes publish other manuscripts submitted through the contest, though without the prize money. Royalty is a 50/50 split for contest winners and books published outside the contests.
