Submissions Policy
For our first few seasons, we're primarily focused on poetry collections. Of particular interest is environmental writing and work that engages with the natural world or carries a strong sense of place or history. We want clear, accessible writing that's both timely and timeless. We only take on a few titles a year, but we welcome unsolicited, unagented submissions during open reading periods with no fee.
