Submissions Policy
Saint Julian Press has only one annual reading period, usually from the beginning of January through the end of February each year. We normally waive reading fees for graduate students or emerging artists and academics that need financial assistance. Saint Julian Press follows a non-traditional innovative literary press and environmentally friendly print-on-demand publishing model that works intimately with each artist and author. We are not accepting new submissions until late 2021 thru early 2022. We will accept unsolicited manuscripts on a case by case basis, especially for emerging writers. We often receive recommendations from educators in the academic world.
