  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    Madville’s mission is to present language in a playful, imaginative way. English is our first language, but we adore code switching and regionalisms from around the world. We publish poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that straddles borders. While our authors generally hail from the English-speaking academic community, our audience extends beyond the narrow confines of the academy into the popular market, particularly with regard to our fiction, where we have a tendency to stray into adventurous, fantastic, and dystopian realities.

  • Submissions policy
    Send us a simple query letter first. Please do NOT send the full manuscript. All manuscripts published by Madville Publishing undergo a rigorous vetting process before they are accepted for publication. While we do not accepting unsolicited manuscripts, we do accept queries by email and request manuscripts from those authors whose work fits our catalog. We send manuscripts out for review to published authors who write reviewers’ reports detailing the works’ strengths and weaknesses before we decide whether or not to offer an author a contract.
